Well, I was starting to work on such a thing when I stopped to ask .... so
I guess I'll just keep on going with the idea ...

That's cool.  I just created:  https://github.com/ccosse/geoplate  Is that
a reasonable name and location?  It's empty still, so easily changed.  I
have an  android gps app that I will upload after cleaning-up.   Beyond
that, I've used django a lot but not geonode, and done GIS but not like
this ... so that's where I'm coming from.   And what I'm after here is a
template which takes care of the common plumbing between smartphone
collection and online presentation, via geonode.  I'm also thinking of
storing uploads as PickledDataObjects, performing serialization and
de-serialization via android and javascript, respectively.

Thank you

Thank you
