Why should I use MERMAID?

Have you ever spent hours, days or months trying to compile different Excel spreadsheets? Have you lost track of which was the correct version?  Have you made mistakes in data analyses because of spelling errors (i.e. misspelled or inconsistent fish names)?  Have you ever joined a new project and immediately been tasked with tracking down old data?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, then MERMAID might be your solution!

MERMAID is a online-offline web application with a vision to revolutionize how coral reef scientists collect, clean, and collaborate with data.
