Review of Mobile Data Collection Software

A session at Wisconsin Land Information Association Annual Conference

Wednesday 12th February, 2014

11:15am to 12:45pm (CST)

It seems everyone is developing some sort of mobile application these days. Government agencies, engineering firms and others not typically associated with software development are all getting in on the action. Field data collection is one class of mobile app, which touches on more disciplines than nearly any other.

This hands-on workshop will review three field data collection apps for iOS (iPad/iPhone) and Android – FulcrumApp, Trimble TerraFlex and Canvas. Each application has a web-based form designer to create custom data collection forms for almost any task imaginable. Build custom selection lists, take photos and uploads results. We will design several data collection forms and evaluate the features, strengths and weaknesses of each app.

This will be a fun and fast-paced 90-minute workshop. You will get up out of your chair and walk around the conference venue to collect data!
