AreaPercent

AreaCalcOriginally conceived to help ranchers estimate the percentage of various forms of ground cover on selected circles in pastures, AreaPercent may be used to estimate percentage areas in many applications, such as geology thin sections, landscaping or medical sections. The user takes a photograph with their iPad or iPhone and then traces over the image with up to five different colors, that are given user defined labels; corrections and erasures are done with the eraser button, which is toggled on and off. Then it is a simple matter of pressing the Area button and the percentage of the various colors to the whole area traced and tinted is presented on the next view. The areas considered are only those tinted, not the whole screen, so irregular shapes may be evaluated as well as geometric shapes. The area percentages are as accurate as the user’s interpretation of what should be tinted and their skill at finger painting. The brush size for the tinting may be varied in the settings to improve accuracy or to speed up the process for quick estimates. We use a stylus for painting and have achieved good results. We also have used a wide angle lens attachment to take photographs of larger areas that otherwise would be difficult to photograph with the iPad or iPhone built in camera. Because the iPad has so much more real estate to work with, the app is easier to use on an iPad rather than an iPhone.

TransectWalkabout

When Allan Savory introduced the ideas of Holistic Management upon the cattle ranching community, several mthods for collecting data were formulated. TransectWalkabout is the first in the suite of apps built around the teachings of Allan Savory and the concepts of Holistic Management as applied to cattle ranching. For each established transect a walkabout is performed recording plants seen. The user first creates a data base of plant types, names and images, with images of 320x480 pixels and .jpg format. New plants may be added to the data base using images moved into the device via iTunes or by using the camera option.

When the app is then run again, the user enters the transect name and the names of observers, then selects Record Plants, Make Notes or Email observations. On the Record Plants screen the user selects from a category of plant, then on the list presented selects the appropriate plant and then presses Add to List to record the observation. For the Notes option, the user may record general observations, or include notes for plants not included in the typical and usual lists presented. The data are stored as a csv (Comma Separated Value) file or as a txt (Text) file and may be uploaded to Apple iWorks Numbers or Microsoft Excel using the File Sharing mode of iTunes, or included as an attachment to an email.

TransectCircle

TransectCircleWhen Allan Savory introduced the ideas of Holistic Management upon the cattle ranching community, several methods for collecting data were formulated. TransectCircle is the third in the suite of apps built around the teachings of Allan Savory and the concepts of Holistic Management as applied to cattle ranching. Along the established transects for monitoring a 200ft tape is laid and every 40 ft along that tape a 4ft circle is laid down and the observers then record a series of observations about what is noted in that circle. This includes information regarding plant types, vigor of plants, number of species, erosional features and other observations, generally recorded as scores against a set of values. The user may consult an information page associated with each entry page to determine what scores are given to each value. In the case of plant names, the actual species is noted, so the input is not numerical. The data is stored as a csv (Comma Separated Value) file and may be uploaded to Apple iWorks Numbers or Microsoft Excel using the File Sharing mode of iTunes.

TransectRainGauges

TransectRainGaugesA simple data collection app for iPhones and iPads created for ranches with multiple rain gauges or wells positioned around the property. The user enters the name of each gauge or well, which is then displayed in ascending alphabetic order. Upon selection of a gauge or well the user then enters the rainfall noted for that gauge, or depth to water for that well, which is then presented in the order of most recent observation to earlier observations. Should the user wish to export data from this app, the iTunes File Sharing mode may be used to export SQLite files which may then be imported into an SQLite file reader or manipulator on the user's computer. File sharing may also be used to import gauge and well names before running the app. This facility can be used only once, before any other data is entered.

 

Une simple App de relevé de données pour iPhones et iPads crée pour les fermes avec de multiples pluviomètres ou puits repartis sur la propriété. L’utilisateur entre le nom de chaque pluviomètre ou puits qui sont alors affiches en ordre alphabétique. Apres avoir sélectionné le pluviomètre ou le puits, l’utilisateur entre les hauteurs de pluie pour chaque pluviomètre ou les hauteurs d’eau pour chaque puits qui affiche alors les données des plus récentes aux plus anciennes. Si l’utilisateur souhaite exporter ses données, c’est possible grâce à la fonction File Sharing d’iTunes sous forme d’un fichier SQL qui peut être lu ou manipulé sur un ordinateur avec un programme de lecture de fichiers SQL. File Sharing peut aussi être utilise pour importer des pluviomètres ou des puits sur l’App. Cette fonctionnalité ne peut cependant être utilisée qu’une seule fois avant l’entrée de données initiale dans l’App. Pour uploader des pluviomètres et des puits dans l’App, il faut créer un fichier de type json.

To use the first time use loading facility to batch load gauge and/or well names, create json files, instructions for how to do this can be found by clicking here.

TransectGaugePro

TransectGaugeProA data collection app for iPhones and iPads created for ranches with multiple rain gauges and wells positioned around the property. The user can choose to view gauge or well locations on maps as a group or individually. With the individual presentation there is also the facility to specify a date range and display rainfall recorded for that period, or changes in epth to water in wells. The data entry option presents a list of gauges or wells in ascending alphabetic order and new gauges or wells may be added, gauge data include name, latitude, longitude and elevation, well data includes, well name, latitude, longitude, well depth and depth to water. Upon selection of a gauge the user then enters the rainfall noted for that gauge, which is then presented in the order of most recent observation to earlier observations, upon selection of a well, the user adds depth to water for that well and the table is updated. There is the facility in gauge entry, rainfall entry, well entry and depth to water entry to edit exiting entries, this facility is useful to add historic data. Should the user wish to export data from this app, the iTunes File Sharing mode may be used to export SQLite files which may then be imported into an SQLite file reader or manipulator on the user's computer. File sharing may also be used to import gauge and well data before runningthe app. This facility can be used only once, before any other data is entered.

Game Count Pro II (Replaces GameCountPro)

Wildlife guides, researchers and enthusiasts, this is a data collection app for iPhones and iPads created for you. Input data items such as Location, Species, Number of Females, Number of Males and Number of Juveniles and the system will provide the date and the latitude and longitude of where the observation is being made. A data base search feature allows you to look for Species and Dates, Locations and Dates, Species and Locations and Locations and Species over date ranges. In order to fully use the features of this app, a device with GPS capability is preferred or, for a Wifi only device, an external GPS device that has Bluetooth communication capability. For Wifi only devices, the Wifi and Bluetooth features must be on for the app to collect Latitudes and Longitudes from the external device. To use the map feature of the Species and Date Range search a Wifi connection is required. Should you wish to export data from this app, the iTunes File Sharing mode may be used to export SQLite files which may then be imported into an SQLite file reader or manipulator on your computer. File sharing may also be used to import species and location names before running the app, these two files, if used, should be called, locationname.json and speciesname.json, instructions on how to create these files are included in the link below. This facility can be used only once, before any other data is entered. There is also the facility to import existing data from the previous version of the app, GameCountPro. To do this use the File Sharing feature of iTunes to copy the .sqlite, .sqlite-shm, .sqlite-wal files from the old app to the desktop, the files should then be renamed to Game_Count_Peo_II.sqlite, Game_Count_Pro_II.sqlite-shm, Game_Count_Pro_II.sqlite-wal (Use uppercase "i" for II). When the new app, Game Count Pro II, is loaded, before running it, use the File Sharing mode of iTunes to copy the three sqlite files to the new app. It is suggested that if location and species json files are also used, then the "Build databases" feature is run first to load species and location data, then when the "Record game counts" button is pressed for the first time, the data from the previous app version will be loaded, and any species or locations that are not in the pre-loaded files, if used, will also be loaded. This will occur only once. Subsequent uses of the app will ignore this feature.

To use the first time use loading facility to batch load species and/or location data, create json files, instructions for how to do this can be found by clicking here .

For an external GPS device we use a Bad Elf GPS Pro with good results.
