WHAT OUR USERS SAY…
“Flocktracker facilitates real time collection of information that is also georeferenced. Our research about safe mobility, college safety or school safety requires knowledge of where, when and how phenomena of violence and delinquency are occurring; Flocktracker eases the collection of this information.”

General Director, Planeación y Desarrollo, S.C. Mexico City, Mexico
“…the software allowed me to identify survey biases as they occurred and adjust in order to capture responses from more women. It also provided a useful way of checking surveyors in the field.”
