DiversityMobile – recording biological research data in nature DiversityMobile is an app for biologists, ecologists and citizen scientists being experienced in recording observation data in nature. Data may be directly entered into the smartphone database which follows the Diversity Workbench information model. Mechanisms of automated recording and storage of GPS data and the manual recording of multimedia data are included. During that process there is no need to be online. The DM virtual environment covers a synchronisation tool and several web services for bidirectional data transfer with an institutional data repository. Features: - Recording of research data and metadata with automatic inclusion of GPS data - Recording of multimedia data (images, audio, video) - Data transfer from and to an institutional data repository for research data via Wi-Fi o with web services installed for download standardised pick lists with names of organisms, geographic maps and already available metadata of individual research projects o with web services installed for upload research data to the data repository The usage of DiversityMobile is confined to scientists involved in research projects. Accounts are set up project-specific. For more information see Upgrade to version 1.0 from any of the previously published versions is supported and should not result in data loss.
