Just an example of the capabilities of Survey123

Anyone going to the field to collect data and GPS location should really investigate the capabilities of Esri's Survey123 app for iPhone and Android.  I took a Geotechnical Gauge used by geologists to characterize soil samples and created a form that collects all the same data using your smart device.  Everything is in a dropdown list format (no typing).  The preceding selection determines your next choice (i.e. if you start by selecting a grain category of gravel, the next question asks the gravel type and eliminates the option to choose something from a fine grain category).  Additionally the app allows you to include a photo or other attachment, and you collect the GPS location of the soil sample!!  GEOTECHNICAL NERDS UNITE!!!
