Fieldtrip GB: A customisable
mapping and data capture app
Ben Butchart b.butchart@ed.ac.uk
Smartphone apps, maps and Augmented Reality, British Geology Survey, 14th
May 2013, Keyworth, Nottingham
Challenges developing data capture
apps
• Relatively high cost
• Rapid advances in technology…, so can become redundant
quickly
• Multiple operating systems
• Mobile Network signal coverage is patchy – urban focus.
• Versatile apps for data collection…do not allow apps to be
‘branded’ …
- proliferation of standalone apps could create clutter
• Users expect apps to be intuitive and have high usability

Fieldtrip GB: A customisable mapping and data capture app

  • 1. Fieldtrip GB: A customisable mapping and data capture app Ben Butchart b.butchart@ed.ac.uk Smartphone apps, maps and Augmented Reality, British Geology Survey, 14th May 2013, Keyworth, Nottingham
  • 2. Challenges developing data capture apps • Relatively high cost • Rapid advances in technology…, so can become redundant quickly • Multiple operating systems • Mobile Network signal coverage is patchy – urban focus. • Versatile apps for data collection…do not allow apps to be ‘branded’ … - proliferation of standalone apps could create clutter • Users expect apps to be intuitive and have high usability Roy, H.E., Pocock, M.J.O., Preston, C.D., Roy, D.B. & Savage, J. Tweddle, J.C. & Robinson, L.D., (2012) Understanding Citizen Science and Environmental Monitoring, UK Environmental Observation Framework, http://www.ceh.ac.uk/products/publications/documents/CitizenScienceReview.pdf (accessed 29/01/2013)
  • 3. Fieldtrip GB - Overview http://tiny.cc/ur1uww http://tiny.cc/z13uww
  • 4. Fieldtrip GB – Overview 2 Home Screen Save maps for use offline
  • 5. Authoring tool: Form Builder Create your own data collection form and deploy it to your phone
  • 6. Authoring tool: Record Viewer Search and filter records Export as GML / geo JSON and collate data
  • 7. Fieldtrip GB Open data mashup • Strategi • Vector Map District • Land-Form PANORAMA • OpenStreetMap • Natural England
  • 8. Why Fieldtrip GB needs its own map? Fieldtrip GB OpenStreetMap Google Maps EDINA Openstream
  • 9. Architecture SERVICE ARCHITECTURE • Apache web server • Mapcache (Tile cache) • Python WSGI (PC API) • Citrix Netscaler load balancer • VSphere VMWare (SUN X4150 cluster) Map GENERATION ARCHITECTURE • OpenStack private cloud • Apache Web Server • Mapserver 6.2 • Mapcache seeder • PostGIS Client Architecture • PhoneGap • OpenLayers • JQuery Mobile Why PhoneGap? • OpenLayers map library more versatile • Easier to implement custom forms • Lower cost of delivering to multiple platforms Data storage outsourced (Dropbox)
  • 10. How it all works
  • 11. PC API Concepts • Editors: forms for capturing data and creating digital assets. • Records: Data captured using editor with links to assets • Assets: Images, audio files, GPX files… • Providers: a personal cloud (storage) provider such as Dropbox.
  • 12. PC API Examples • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/auth/providers • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/auth/dropbox(then login) • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/auth/dropbox/%token%/ • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/editors/dropbox/%token%/ • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/records/dropbox/%token%/a nimal • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/fs/dropbox/%token%/records /animal/1366535731001.jpg • fieldtripgb.edina.ac.uk/pcapi/records/dropbox/%token%/?f ilter=editor,format&id=Animals.edtr&frmt=csv

PC API: Records { "records": [ { "fields": [ { "id": "fieldcontain-radio-1", "val": "Duck", "label": "Animal" }, { "id": "fieldcontain-image-1", "val": "1366535731001.jpg", "label": "Take" } ], "point": { "lat": 55.93927759949593, "alt": null, "lon": -3.145817487354138 }, "editor": "animals.edtr", "timestamp": "2013-04-21T09:15:53.246Z", "name": "animal" } ], "error": 0 }
  • 15. Future Direction: Citizen Science and Augmented Reality We are planning… • Add “Project Builder” to Authoring Tool – Streamlined interface – Single capture form – Pre-cached map downloads – Image overlays • App Builder: generate an app (apk)? • Line and Polygon annotations • Citizen Science – More complex forms , classification workflows – Reward contributors with context driven information – More sensor capabilities • Augmented Reality (Wikitude PhoneGap plugin and ARML 2.0) – Visualize and capture GPS tracks and POIs in landscape – Add simple 3d models (wind turbines etc.) and capture in landscape – Capture Thematic 2.5 overlays – Location triggered events • Develop PC API for use by other organisations data storage (Digimap, BGS)
