Our product 4d-miner makes it possible to record data in the field using commonly available mobile devices to code the data immediately together with its geo coordinates, and to simultaneously transfer the data to existing systems for analysis. Modern cell- and smart-phones allow the mobile collection of multimedia data. In the field, photos, videos, audio notes and alphanumerical data can be recorded easily with inexpensive hardware.
This data is compiled together with the related positioning data and the time on the mobile client to produce geocoded data sets. The data can then be transferred to the 4d-miner server synchronously via GPRS, UMTS, WLAN or at a later point in time per cable. The 4d-miner middleware provides interfaces for analysis and post-processing.
