Rugged, sunlight readable, sometimes even waterproof tablets, GPS tablets perfect for conducting field work surveys. Often these are the best tablets for field work. Paired with a mobile data collection app such as Device Magic, Google Forms, or QGIS Collect, these can be powerful data collection devices. Proper implementation of mobile data collection technology can save even small companies thousands of dollars. Greenhouses, nurseries, medical grow facilities, all of these types of industrial operations benefit from collecting prescribed real-time data.
In addition to GPS data layers that can populate fields (in more robust collection methods), users can rely on the GPS camera to collect geo-located photos. Many tablets are dustproof, shockproof, waterproof, and come with a comfortable hand strap or all-day carrying case.
Gorilla glass screens, rubber coated edges and corners, sunligh readable HD displays, GNSS GPS collection capabilities, good battery life, and appropriate operational temperature ranges are all components of the best field tablets.
