Data Logging Application for Smartphones running Python

Target Platform: Python Code for Nokia N82 Smartphone

Overview: This application allows the capture of imagery, audio, and location from a Nokia N82 smartphone. The application uses Python to access the current playhead position of the audio file and store this in the text log file along with corresponding photo id (based on the Phone Python time), and GPS coords. In addition GPS DOP, speed, and satellite information is logged. Furthermore the cell tower ID is recorded.

3 datasets are created:

   - an audio file given the start time as a filename
  - a set of JPG images (each given correspoding Python time as filename)
  - a log file storing GPS info along with the Python time ID (to link to correct audio file, and image)

Example of the Use of the Application in Academic work:  http://2009.foss4g.org/researchpapers/#researchpaper_3
