Field Notes Go Digital
Here is a new app for your online tools arsenal for keeping notes on the google maps interface. When i ran across this tool, i immediately could see how it could be valuable to land surveyors for taking notes related to properties and documenting digital versions of field notes.
Notes.is is a Google Maps based site that allows anyone to pin a note to a Google Map. Using the app you can place a pinned note on your favourite restaurant, gallery or any other location that you wish to share with the world.
The map includes a really useful tutorial that guides you through the process of how to add a note to the map. I recommend following the tutorial as it also guides you through some of the app's best features.
For example you can add a hashtag to a note. The hashtags are a great feature when browsing notes added by other users. When you zoom in on a location the most popular hashtags in your current view are displayed above the map. Users can then click on any of the hashtags to highlight all the notes including that hashtag.
When you pin a note to the map you can share your submission with friends via Facebook or Twitter simply by selecting the 'share' option.
