State Audubons receive Fujitsu technology

Three independent Audubon societies in Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Jersey will receive $3 million worth of Fujitsu technology. The donated products come from a $30 million technology grant focused on nonprofit and community-based organizations.

The societies will receive assorted hardware and software, including file servers, external hard disk drives, Tablet PCs, laptops, plasma screens and LCD projectors. With the technology, the organizations plan to gather, store and analyze data about birds and their behavior; create more accurate maps of sanctuaries; and investigate migration patterns by examining Doppler radar, bird banding archives and audio recordings.

With plasma screens and LCD projectors connected to Tablet PCs, birders can create interactive exhibits and educational programs. Pretty darn cool what technology can do for birds and birders!
