User-driven app BeeCon­nected al­lows Aus­tralian bee­keep­ers and farm­ers to work to­gether to pro­tect our pre­cious pol­li­na­tors. Farm­ers and bee­keep­ers log the lo­ca­tion of their prop­er­ties or bee­hives re­spec­tively through a Google Maps-based plat­form. When a bee­hive is logged within a 10km ra­dius of a farmer’s prop­erty, both users are sent no­ti­fi­ca­tions and can then dis­cuss ac­tiv­i­ties (spray­ing, flow­er­ing, colonies, etc.) via a se­cure mes­sag­ing ser­vice.
