The eEcology SMS reciever (https://github.com/NLeSC/eEcology-SMS-reciever) service recieves SMS messages as http POST requests and stores them in the eEcology database. The SMS messages are converted to http POST requests by the SMSSync Android app (http://smssync.ushahidi.com/).

The messages are stored in the PostgreSQL server at db.e-ecology.sara.nl in the eecology database and sms schema. The data can be inserted by the eEcology SMS reciever service. The data can be selected by users with the gps_read role.
