TERMS AND FUNCTIONS
Event – a conduction of chemical treatment for plants or process of honey plants flowering. Characterized by place (area), start date and end date / time.
For installation on a map you can use the drawing board.
Types of events:
type № 1 - "chemical treatment" – an area of chemical treatment;
type № 2 - "blooming of honey plants" - an area of blossoming array of honey plants.
Object - a point on the map, which is determined by the marker setting. Action of the object both can be not limited or restricted in time at the request of the User. For installation on a map use the drawing board.
Types of objects:
type № 1 - "apiary" - stationary and nomadic apiaries;
type № 2 - "people" - the place of your residence or location of people;
type № 3 - "pets" - a place of grazing or walking of animals;
type № 4 - "mushrooms, herbal plants" - a place of gathering mushrooms, berries, herbal plants;
type № 5 - "other" - other types of objects;
type № 6 - "garden" - garden, arrays of other perennial plants;
type № 7 - "chemical pollution" - long-term (permanent) place of chemical pollution: a dump, production facilities, etc.
Objects are the centers of the conditional periphery, within which occurs a constantly monitoring of the occurrence of an event or other object areas. At the moment there is a following monitoring:
The object type №1 (apiary) - monitoring of Event type №1 (chemical treatment).
Hidden Object - The object type № 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, which assigned by the user the status "hidden" is not displayed on the map and is not visible to other guests and users, but it has all the functions of a normal Object. Saves User`s hidden places.
Only user who set this Object can see the information on the map, also setting the filter of hidden objects of a certain type.
Guest - unregistered visitor of the site.
User - registered site visitor.
Administrator - a person who manages the site.
Demo - the mode in which the entered information by guest or user is not retained after exit of this mode and is not visible on the map for another guest / user. It gives the opportunity to practice in the establishment on the map objects and events. It allows you to generate test sending, test alerts to your email and a limited number (3) of test SMS-notifications from the site on phone number.
Bulletin of planned chemical treatments of plants - published newsletter with a list of all current notifications of planned chemical processing plants.
Toggle filters - enables to filter the information displayed on the map.
Create User Init Map - allows you to save the current map view. Displays carried out in the "My map" menu. Number of create maps is not limited. To create and edit use the menu item "My map - Manage maps".
Save search area - function for beekeepers, which determines the current position of the map on the screen (without reference to the User`s placed objects), as the scope of the search Events - blossoming array of honey plants and objects - gardens. The information is displayed in the menu item "User map - Where to put the apiary." By installing the area of search is included a constantly monitoring of new events - blossoming array of honey plants in the specified area with sending the respective notification. You can see the specified scope of the search in menu item "My map - settings of additional parameters" button "Show an area". Re-installing of the new search area deletes the previous one.
Set radius - allows you to find within a certain distance from the specified point, the recommended areas for placement of apiaries (arrays blossoming plants, gardens), or by using a filter, and any other objects and events.
Why a monitoring system should be international rather than national in each country?
The system is largely created to prevent the contamination of beekeeping products by harmful substances during the chemical processing plant. For example, the border between Russia and Ukraine is about 1,200 km. With a radius of flight of bees (and for them, as is well known, national borders are not an obstacle), about 3 kilometers, so there is a territory on both sides of the border about 7,200 sq.km. If the system worked separately in each of these countries, the information on this territory would not be accurate. This could result a potential pollution of honey by harmful substances (average about 100 kg / ha) in an amount of up to 72 000 000 (!!!) kg. Of course, this figure is too high, in real terms it is impossible, but it gives an idea of the possible damage. Thus, in isolation from the other countries, such a system of monitoring and notification would be effective only in the island states that do not have land borders with neighboring countries. Conclusion: as the wind that carries chemical and bee flying for nectar does not use the concept of "state border", so we, the people who are not indifferent to their own health and the environment, should do the same in this regard.
Why in some areas there are a few located marks of objects - apiaries, etc...?
Firstly, the monitoring system is set up relatively recently and the number of users is constantly increasing, and secondly, some users install hidden objects - they are not visible on the general map. This may be due, for example, the reluctance of beekeepers to publicize place of their nomadic apiaries, mushroom pickers - to share their "mushroom" places, etc...
Why in Italy I get SMS-notification signed by the sender "GrandExpert", and my friend from United States gets same notifications from an unknown phone number?
The fact is that in the territories of several countries and certain mobile operators to specify the sender can be used as "alpha-name." Our registered alpha-name is "GrandExpert". But in some cases it is technically impossible to use and then there indicates one of the numbers of mobile operator. It is not affected on the content and delivery time of notifications.
Do you plan to use on the site other languages?
Yes, the language versions will be added gradually as the number of users and the popularity of the monitoring system will increase. There are expected the next versions of languages - Belarusian, hereinafter - the French, German, Portuguese, Spanish.
Are there any plans in the future to send notification by other communication channels, such as through Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, messages on social networks?
Yes, it is planned. The number of communication channels will gradually increase.
Can I create a notification about the holding of a chemical treatment or an array of flowering plants honey without access to the Internet and without coming to your site?
At present, such a possibility is not provided. However, in the nearest future is planning the introduction of services to create events by sending an SMS-message on your phone number. In this case, the message will need to be in a certain sequence and with specifying the form of cadastral number of land on which will be created an event and other characteristics.
Will be released a mobile application for use with the Monitoring System?
Yes, this application will be developed soon. In addition to the standard set of functions it provides for determination of the current location of the user with the help of GPS-navigation for the installation of objects and events.
I would like to register, but it's hard to pick an unused login. What do you advise?
Recommend to use your email address as a login. It will not be repeated and it is difficult to forget.
The Company "N" offers to place its advertisement on your site on a contractual basis.
Policy of the site of Monitoring System does not provide advertising materials. Thank you for the suggestion.
Will be my phone number shared in other ways beside this site?
The phone number you specified during the registration provides to users of this site only in one case - if you are referred to the website for information about the conduct of a chemical processing plant or to notify you about the array of flowering honey plants. The circle of people who see your phone number is limited to a range of 10 km for the chemical treatment, and 50 km for the blossoming of arrays. This is necessary to enable interested Members who will need to contact you for further details.
