The Electronic Field Book is an all-in-one, easy-to-use platform. This plug-and-play device is more than a means to take notes or check information on a tablet. The device can record every step of the expedition and link the samples to places, and to other sets of samples. Every interaction with the scientists is also stored in the system. Copyright ESA–A.
