JRC has released the source code of the Smartphone application “Invasive Alien Species Europe” (allowing reporting of invasive species of Union concern under EU Regulation 1143/2014), under the General Public License GNU GPLv3. This license allows interested users to copy, distribute and modify the software as long as track changes/dates are kept source files.
Any modifications to the GPL-licensed code must also be made available under the same license, ideally complemented with build & install instructions.
JRC will soon release an upgrade of the App, which will include the 12 species added to the list of Union concern by the Commission Implementing Regulation 1263/2017. JRC plans also to release the back-end software supporting the validation of data submitted via the App under the same type of license.
