    Hey everyone!
    I would like to start writing educational applications for mobilephones.
    My first project is to make a program for use in Enviromental studies of different biotopes.
    The purpose of the app would be to assist pupils in collecting data at different locations and for the pupils to be able to send a report to a email account.

    To give a better idea of what i am thinking i will give a small case.
    The pupils are given the assignment of going somewhere specific(GPS).
    When they arrive at the place they will register the position using Goggle Maps.
    They will then choose which kind of biotope they are going to examin.
    Then they will be led through a number of different activities in which they collect data about the biotope. (Temperature, ph, nitrite, nitrate, etc.)
    When done they pupils will send this as a report to an email address.

    How would you go about creating such an app? Is there any existing framework on which to workoff off?

    Regards.

    This is actually not that hard to do. There are tons of samples using google maps and the gps for the android. I wrote one myself. Interesting idea.
