GeoLog provides the basic functionality that most outdoor workers require. EcoLog has more functions that allows the user greater flexibility to record survey data at remote points and zoning of maps during surveys.
EcoLog allows field workers to easily create customized survey forms on mobiles to collect and collate data during field surveys. All data collected is location-referenced and time-stamped. With EcoLog, you can even collect survey data for points remote from your survey position or assign data to an area on a map.
All data recorded is automatically location-referenced and time stamped. Any number of photographs can be taken and linked to a survey point. GeoLog allows you to easily import survey data into different software platforms such as GIS or to back-up onto spreadsheets such as Excel.

The user of GeoLog has great flexibility as it allows forms to be customized depending on the survey or project requirements and you can create forms whilst outdoors. You hold all data on your mobile – there is no reliance on accessing a cloud whilst in the field! You simply back-up data when back in the office.
Each survey form you create can be re-used. Data from recurrent surveys can be held until the end of a project for collation.
