  • Looking for an Iphone inventory app that can record GPS location and export data into access or excel. I need to inventory equipment spread across an area and would like to be able to record information about each item as well as its gps coordinates. I would also need the gathered information to be able to export into access or excel. Does anyone know of a iphone app that is capable of this. Android could work too.

RoboGEO software might be pretty much what you need - if your phone's camera can geotag (put GPS coordinates into the EXIF fields of your photos), you can use RoboGEO to create the KML/whatever files you'd like to use. Otherwise, use a GPS & camera combo. Once the camera & GPS have sync'ed clocks, you shoot all your items. Later, with the software, you can create all sorts of output to track your stuff.


Generally, what you're talking about is a very simple GIS (Geographic Information System) that attaches info to location. In a "real" GIS, the data you collect can be mixed in with zillions of other GIS records for all sorts of simple-to-sophisticated analysis. You can always go big on this one!

AntiMap Log does this (free) and has iOS and Android versions.

Google's My Track for Android tracks your location data, and exports it in various formats - of special interest to you would be CSV - this file can be imported easily into Excel.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
