This application is made during the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2014. It can be used to gather information following a certain template. These templates are stored on a server. The observations can be shown on a map, saved locally and uploaded to the server again.
The app is designed for android and currently only for a Nexus 4 (768 x 1280 pixels).
The (technical) documentation can be found in the wiki.
This project has three blogposts:
- Startup of GSoC: http://blog.52north.org/2014/05/28/ilwis-mobile-app/
- Mid-term of GSoC: http://blog.52north.org/2014/07/03/ilwis-mobile-midterm-blog/
- End of GSoC: http://blog.52north.org/2014/08/22/ilwis-mobile-final-blog/
The app needs a server to provide the templates an other data. The server code can be foud here: https://github.com/52North/IlwisConnectors/tree/master/gatherer
