wish to introduce 'Mobile Mapping for administration', with open GIS in India.
I find only BeeGIS and GVSIG, compatible with direct (online) data logging
as well as off-line (when not surveying)possible. Will be happy to have pointers on other Open GIS software.
wish to experiment with GPS before suggesting to the users on a combination
of GPS (data logger) which can be used for collecting data and loading the same in the evening after work, on any computer.
Accuracy: What are the merits I have to look for such that best possible accuracy (near equator or Latitude less than 20 Deg North).
Cost: This is the most important factor, as the budget is modest.
1. Logger Pedals, GPS in pocket set to log location every 5 seconds.
2. Note time and notes on a scribble pad in local language. (the data
logger only carries the GPS, even may not be aware of its function)
3. Back at the base the GPS and notes are deposited with a system operator
who will log the data through bluetooth, and offer it to local administration on tasks like, Garbage removal, school attendance or even traffic snarls.
This will help in the second step of a project where base GIS data is readied, and awaits societal use.
