Solar panels provide the energy to run the network of wi-fi hotspots and time-lapse cameras collect footage from a ridge near the coast of Abel Tasman National Park. From left to right are Chris Rodley from SnapitHD and Daniel Bar Even and Peter Handford from Groundtruth. (image: © V Meduna)

With the help of two science-based companies, Groundtruth and SnapitHD, Project Janszoon recently established a network of wi-fi hotspots and set up time-lapse cameras to provide a virtual visitor’s centre. The network allows visitors to access information about the weather, tides, points of interest, history and wildlife on the project’s website or through a free smart phone app. The wireless technology also means that visitors can listen to a live link of birdsong from the pest-free Adele Island and view footage of Adele Island and Anchorage.
