Did you ever wish to complete Distance Observations using all three observers? With this app, you can. It is made to make observations easy, using a smartphone tied to your observers. Your observers will be able to concentrate 100% on the terrain below increasing their effectivity.

With the enhanced tactile buttons and high contrast interface, this app is easy to use in moving helicopter.

Collected data are stored in SQLite database on devices, with the options of sharing the data.

The beta version is available for testing. If you wish to participate in testing, please provide contact details and explanation why this app would be useful for you.

The app will work on older models of the iPhone.
