Geopaparazzi 3.4.0 has just been released to the android market. This version has one major feature: support for vector data from Spatialite databases. This opens up a new world for android based mobile devices. This is how it looks like when one uses it by overlaying a scanned Finnish orienteering map and the results of some hydrologic/hydraulic analyses: old, new and extracted watershed boundaries and channel lines.
Well, the other major feature added to the release gets a bit in the shadow of Spatialite, but it might be even more important to some users: RFID tag reading in custom forms through NFC or bluetooth.
If you are interested you can read the whole story here.
We just released Geopaparazzi 3.3.0 in the market. There are a couple of small enhancements and a feature we think most people will like.
The most important feature for this release is for sure the sketch pad, that allows user to draw their notes out in the field.
Check out the release post for more info.

There has been lots going on about geopaparazzi in the last year.
Customizations have been in the fields of disaster management and waste management, find a short description here.
There has been talk about integration with the ODK project.
With the new android based tablets there has been talk to get more features from BeeGIS into Geopaparazzi to bring the field survey on those new, lightweight, nice cozy, smart devices.
Our (HydroloGIS) objective has been to release the project as free in the market (it has been free and open source from the very start) once we had the money in we needed to buy the book to learn android development. Well, we got more, we got to develop customizations and it is about time that we finally release it free in the market.
So it is official, Geopaparazzi is now not only free as in speach, but also as in beer!
We would like to express our gratitude to all those that supported us through the buying of the application!
We also hope this will attract developers to contribute to the project.
We recently wrote a small article about the history of Geopaparazzi here.
A quick reminder of what it is: "Geopaparazzi is a tool developed to do very fast qualitative engineering/geologic surveys. Even if the main aim is in the field of surveying, it contains tools that can be of great use also to OpenStreetMappers as well as tourists that want to keep a geo-diary.Geopaparazzi is now available on the Android Market."
