A pilot project platform for the Fruit Fly Interface Database called the Fruit Fly Monitoring System (hosted on CPHDForum.org) was launched in May 2014.
The Fruit Fly Monitoring System was developed to provide a centralized database of the Fruit Fly Trapping data for the Caribbean region.
Its goal is to provide a standardized platform for Fruit Fly trapping data from participating countries across the region. This will aid in the reporting of the Fruit Fly numbers in the various countries. Built into this system are tools that will aid in the faster data entry of Fruit Fly related data.
All aspects of the Fruit Fly Trapping data are captured in relation to the country and can only be viewed by the specified users for that particular country.
The system incorporates business rules, standards and validation on the data entered to assist in the data capture process.
