State of the GPS “Apposphere” - Navigating Smartphone Data Collection Apps

A simple search for “GPS” apps in the Apple App store or on Google Play will return thousands of results for free or low cost mapping apps now available on your smartphone. So where do you start?

This webinar will start to answer that question. UConn CLEAR has been conducting GPS trainings for nearly a decade that have focused on using a handheld GPS unit to collect geospatial data in the field and then map it. Due to popular demand, we are developing a version of the course focused on using smartphones to collect field data instead of a dedicated GPS receiver. This webinar will provide an overview of the smartphone GPS universe and showcase our favorite apps for field data collection.
