Environmental data collection support
Many factors influence the performance of seedstock or the resulting crop – including location within a field, soil types and watering patterns.
This information is important in understanding the data we are able to extract from the samples you send. DArT has developed apps, usable on hand-held devices, to help you accurately record and document the samples you collect.
KDSmart is an application designed to operate on a variety of Android tablet and phone devices for collection of data in the field or nursery. Using data selectively exported from KDDart or a variety of other potential sources, KDSmart captures and stores trial measurement and result data for subsequent analysis using KDDart, KDCompute or any other analysis tool.
KDSmart can operate standalone, with or without the full KDDart infrastructure. In standalone mode, it can import and export trials and traits defined in CSV files.
Users can select or hide traits for display and scoring at any time, along with a range of other options to suit their preferences or the task at hand, including accessibility preferences such as convenient left or right hand scoring.
For ecology specific work, we are developing a new web and mobile application to support data management and research for ecologists. The Ecologue is currently in development and has emerged from our DNA profiling work for thousands of ecological projects, large and small performed by DArT in the last decade.
