VespApp was proposed as a citizen science tool to detect and control of the invasive yellow-legged hornet (Vespa velutina). It was accidentally introduced in Europe from Asia. Its first detection in Majorca (Balearic Islands; Spain) took place by researchers at the laboratory of Zoology in collaboration with local beekeepers in October 2015.

Vespapp is a software (mobile app and website) which aims to identify any suspicious observation (hornets and nests) by sending a picture to a global database. An expert panel received the information and then is confirmed or discarded. An action protocol is implemented in case of a positive identification.

This tool is installed as a Firefox Add-on and it stores, in a central system (Web Mining Service), the gathered information in the browser of the client.

JMeter Data Mining extension

This is a JMeter extension created to allow for web structure mining process. This type of mining process is very important, for example, in the field of web performance engineering and web development validations. The extension allows users to define the HTML tags that wrap the content units and it creates a graph model to represent the content units of all the web pages and the relationships among them (aggregations). The usability of the extension has been validated in real scenarios.
