Do you want to help measuring spiders for science? Download the SpiderSpotter Card for self printing at home and hold it in the pictures you take in the SpiderSpotter App. With the measurement reference, we can determine the size of your spider or web observation better. You can also order it at spiderspotter@UGent.be, provide your address and the number of cards you need and we will send them to you!
When holding the SpiderSpotter Card near the spider or a spider's web, please make sure that a ruler and one of the brigthness gradient strips is visible in the picture. You can read more about how to take the pics in our info section!
