weLogger is a field research tool freely available as an iOS app that can be used by physical, biological, environmental, and social scientists to collect data in the field. Researchers can take photos, record video and audio, and make text notes all tied to GPS coordinates. Users upload the data they have collected to a custom Google Maps mashup application provided free with the mobile app that serves as a data repository and provides an interface for viewing data in a map interface.
