CHARLESTON, SC, UNITED STATES, Aug. 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Innodel Technologies, based in Ahmedabad, India, 275 miles north of Mumbai, voted by https://www.wiseidiot.com/best-cities-to -Live-In-India/, as the 3rd best city to live in India. Roadkill Art in Charleston, South Carolina, a city voted the most livable city in the United States by https://www.travelandleisure.com/worlds-best/best-cities-in-the-united-states-2022. With Innodel responding to a business need from Roadkill Art via Linkedin, two companies met far from extraordinary cities and collaborated to create an app that makes it easy and fast to find roadkill for consumption and America to help load up millions of pounds of available game meat.
Innodel with expertise in enterprise applications and product development for bespoke web and mobile apps. Roadkill Art is a social cause company with a mission to help Americans take advantage of the millions of roadkills available on US roads while they’re fresh. By combining skills, the companies have created the Roadkill Art app.
With a simple touch of an orange bar that says “Report Roadkill,” a report begins by marking a location, then allows viewing an image, video, and assessment of the roadkill’s condition. App members can scroll through the “list view” of all reports or search the map for location markers that find Roadkill to include. With Innodel’s technical know-how and Roadkill Art’s desire to bring good meat from the streets to the table, Roadkill’s image, often described as disgusting, is now changing to edible and delicious.

Most recently, the Roadkill Art app in The Food and Restaurant branch.
Behind the Roadkill Art brand is author and content creator Janet Arneau, who recognized the need for a technical GEO app that would help people get to roadkill quickly, and that would also provide the process needed to capture big game from the street to the table. Learning at one of the 14,000 U.S. soup kitchens how much big game roadkill is available on U.S. roads annually and, if picked up in time, can sustain a family for a long time or provide healthy meat for a number of people, Ms. Arneau designed “Roadkill Art” app.
The app is made for everyone who likes venison. Many app members are outdoor experts who know if it’s good to transport, process, store and cook. Not only are members willing to help with all of the processes to make Roadkill ready to eat, the Roadkill Art Facebook page has videos on how to process a deer, how to skin a deer, and tons of delicious venison recipes. Also welcome to become a member of the Roadkill Art app are those who are willing to help and know that Roadkill Reports is providing dinner for someone, maybe many dinners.
Roadkill is legal in 49 states and the District of Columbia, the only state where it is not legal is Texas. In 41 states, it is necessary to either call the state Department of Natural Resources to report a traffic accident, fill out a salvage report, or call the police to request a traffic accident permit. There are 8 states that allow roadkill picking without reporting: Delaware, Wisconsin, California, Arkansa, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. The Roadkill Art app makes it easy for you to find out what is required to ingest roadkill in each state from the Regulations page. (Click the icon, an orange star) The states are color coded into 8 ordinance categories that define what a state requires to house street killers. Click on a state for a detailed summary of that state’s highway rules and regulations.
The roadkill statistics reported by the Department of Transportation are accurate figures drawn from documents of reported animal deaths, most from police reports. In 2019 there were 36,096 reported animal deaths in the US, there are many more street killing facilities that were not called to the police. With a total of 1,804,800 pounds of meat reported for 2019 and an estimated average of 50 pounds of meat per big game, roadkill provided an average of 7,219,200 meals. A pound of ground beef makes 4 good sized burgers, 50 pounds of meat made into burgers, steaks, roasts or stew meat goes a long way. The police and DNR constantly use dead deer and big game that will not devour fresh, free meat by taking it to a person who wants it or to a soup kitchen staffed by experienced game meat processors and cooks.
The best way to report roadkills in the app is to have a phone holder in the car, sitting on the dash facing the windshield and having the app on the home screen ready to grab in a split second. If you see something slow down, click the app icon. When the map appears, click the orange bar at the bottom of the page. The roadkill location is now marked. Next take a picture. If it is possible to stop, a video of up to 30 seconds can be recorded, commenting on the recording will be appreciated and enjoyed by other members. Videos provide real-time content for members who want a close look at the state of the roadkill.
Two companies, Innodel Technologies and Roadkill Art, working together to streamline roadkill reporting for the US market, are helping provide American meat. The members of the Roadkill Art app are ready to guide you through the process and help you turn a roadkill into a delicious recipe. With meat prices soaring at the moment, join a unique community using roadkill, become a “roadkill reporter”, help get roadkill while it’s still fresh and good to eat.
