Field Book is a simple app for taking phenotypic notes on field research plots. Collecting data in the field has traditionally been a laborious process requiring writing notes by hand followed by transcription. We hope to create an app that entirely replaces paper field books that increases the amount of data collected as well as overall integrity.
Field Book can collect data in the following formats: numeric, percentage, categorical, date, Boolean, text, and audio. Traits are user-definable and can be generated and transferred between devices. Sample files are provided with the default installation.
Development of Field Book was supported by the Collaborative Crop Research Program of The McKnight Foundation (http://ccrp.org/). The source and issue tracker for Field Book can be found here (https://github.com/trife/Field-Book). Field Book was described in a 2014 publication in Crop Science (http://dx.doi.org/10.2135/cropsci2013.08.0579).
Field Book was developed for 7" tablets and may not display correctly with smaller or larger screens.
