Seafood Watch Automated Reporting Tool (SWAT)
Automating an analogue research process
CUSTOM SOFTWARE FOR RESEARCH
The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program produces consumer ‘pocket guides’ and provides direct consultation to major retailers and restaurants to help source and purchase the most sustainable seafood possible.
Digital Timber oversaw the development of a custom software tool that will allow their research teams to enter all necessary information through a simple web-based step-by-step interface, cite and upload references and generate final reports in a consistent format. Moreover, reports can be edited on the fly so they are always current and outside experts can add their thinking easily.
