STEFS Project:

The ENVIT Student Group proposed to develop data collection software applications for mobile PDA computers. Current industry trends point to the rapid growth of mobile computing in the earth and environmental sciences. Through the development of an electronic journal, field personnel will be able to record environmental and geolocational data automatically. ENVIT envisions applications for Environmental Assessment, Hydrology Studies or Water Quality Sampling. Current advances in mobile computing, such as GPS and GIS, will be incorporated into the electronic field notebook. ENVIT will integrate the student-designed software tools into new and existing curriculum through use of the handheld computers in field and laboratory exercises.
