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 have created Field Book to replace paper field books to enable increased collection speed with greater data integrity.
Field Book can collect data in the following formats: numeric, percentage, categorical, date, Boolean, text, photo, counter, rust rating, and audio. Traits are defined by the user and can be exported and transferred between devices. Sample files are provided with the 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 ). A journal article describing Field Book was published in 2014 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.
