Field based data collection

We can provide you with data collection tools and methodologies based on some of the latest tablet and smartphone technology. Land, sea and cultural heritage managers can be equipped with iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and smartphones to record details of cultural sites, environmental monitoring locations, flora and fauna observations and conservation and management activities whilst in the field. Once captured these data can be sent to a centralised database and stored away for future use. The large screens of these devices allows easy typing of names and descriptions, collection of photographs and the recording of GPS locations. Moving maps can be used for easy navigation throughout the landscape. These developments offer a number of advantages over many other data collection tools currently being used and are expected to have a significant impact on cultural and environmental data collection strategies used in future.
