On today’s show we’re going to talk about taking and managing field photographs.
There are a lot of options out there and no standard answer to the question, "What do you use to record digitally in the field?" Fortunately, Chris and Paul have some experience with this and Chris has worked on two apps for site recording in the field. We talk about the progression from fillable PDFs all the way to custom applications on today's episode. This is good material even if you're already recording in the field.
On today's show, Chris and guest host Richie Cruz talk to the creators of digital field recording software Wildnote. Kristen Hazard and Nancy Douglas tell us how they came up with Wildnote, what it can do, what it can help YOU do, and how much it costs. This is one more tool for your digital toolbox so listen up!
On today's episode, host Chris Webster announces a new position - co-host of the ArchaeoTech podcast - talks about some digital field recording with Tap Forms, and announces an upcoming service from DIGTECH that will make your technological advancements easier, more smooth, and affordable.

App Of The Day
On today's episode, Chris and Chris talk about field tablet drawing applications. Drawing planviews, profiles, artifacts, and other archaeological phenomena is critical in most field situations. Drawing artifacts and features allows us to bring out specifics that you can't always see in photographs. In traditional field situations, graph paper and a clip board are used to draw. Those drawings are often digitized using Illustrator or they're photocopied. Either way, it's extra work and the chance for error increases. The apps we'll discuss will allow you to draw in the field and avoid the second step.
