Projects Completed by EcoTech Solutions
  • Cheap and Cheerful Restoration Effectiveness App (2013 – 2017) Mobile application design and development to track the design, implementation, and effectiveness of stream restoration projects. The application tracks the geomorphic effectiveness of individual restoration structures through hypotheses-driven observations and the creation of 2D maps representing geomorphic unit assemblages. Client: Eco Logical Research, Inc.

  • PIT Array Efficiency Solution (2015 – 2017) Desktop database and application to store passive integrated transponder (PIT) tag detections at interrogation sites throughout the Columbia river basin and calculate consistent estimates of array detection efficiency. Eco Logical Research, Inc.

  • Weber Property Stream Restoration (2016) Provided technical and logistical oversite of cheap and cheerful bank protection methods. The goal was to reduce excessive bank erosion and improve riparian health on 500 linear feet of Four-Mile Creek, WA. Palouse Conservation District.

  • Paradise Creek Stream Restoration (2016) Provided technical and logistical oversite of cheap and cheerful bank protection methods. The goal was to reduce excessive bank erosion and improve riparian health on 450 linear feet of Paradise Creek, WA. Palouse Conservation District.

  • dBAM and rBAM – Deer and Rabbit Behavior Monitoring App (2015) Mobile application design and development for monitoring foraging and behavior of deer and rabbit species. Washington State University.

  • Medusahead Management Web App (2015) Web database application design and development used by multiple rangeland researchers to compile the results of medusahead management strategies. Utah State University.

  • FISHapp – Fast Inventory of Stream Habitat (2014 – 2015) Mobile application design and development to rapidly collect the habitat condition and use by endangered salmonid species. The application included electronic data capture for channel morphology, substrate characteristics, riparian composition, and wood counts. USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center and Montana State University.

  • The Beaver App (2014) Mobile application design and development for a citizen science app to collect data on beaver sightings and dam locations. Data from citizen scientists is directly uploaded and synced to a master database where it is used to inform scientists on beaver distribution and validate the Beaver Restoration Assessment Tool. Utah State University.

  • SWFLapp – Southwestern Willow Flycatcher Wildlife Habitat Evaluation Guide App (2014) Mobile application design and development for monitoring the condition and use of habitat by the endangered Southwestern Willow Flycatcher. Natural Resource Conservation Service.

  • Restoration Tracking App (2014) Mobile application design and development to monitor the design and implementation progress of stream restoration projects in Asotin County, Washington. Asotin County Public Utility District.

  • Temperature Management Solution (2014) Desktop database and application to store, perform quality control and assurance, and report summaries of stream and air temperature probe data. Eco Logical Research, Inc.

  • Construction Monitoring App (2013-2014) Database and mobile application development to track construction management progress and resources. Yakama Nation Fisheries Klickitat Watershed Enhancement Project.

  • Stream Discharge Digital Data Collection App (2013-2014) Database and mobile application development to aid in stream discharge collection and data management. Yakama Nation Fisheries Klickitat Watershed Enhancement Project.
