I'm starting a new topic here after branching off a topic starting by MATrickett regarding: Using Adam for archaeology
I'm currently working on a notetaking and data collection application for the Adam that, while geared to professional users, will probably have a use to everyone. It will be released open source under the GPL. I'm currently working on some Balsamiq mockups at the moment, and will post them here this weekend by Sunday. I'm looking for critical input on deciding what functionality is useful now, what should come later, and what should be ignored.The core premise of the app is to integrate data from all of the various sensors (camera, gps, usb connected devices) along with handwritten notes in a geospatial and temporal way using a zooming user interface (c.f. Jef Raskin's work).
I wanted to open a new thread now to avoid hijacking MATrickett's thread on the specifics of the Adam applied to archaeology. I want to continue the conversation started there regarding the general case of data collection/observation and the useful ways of collecting and organizing that information.
