The CTP workshop focuses on using free or low-cost smartphone apps for collecting field data including GPS waypoints, tracks and photographs and digital survey or field forms. Data can then be displayed in a online web mapping tool like Google Maps. Apps and web tools used in the workshop are outlined below. Participants should download these apps and set up user accounts prior to the start of the workshop.
