The handbook for the course is available here. This course has been exceptionally popular. References from a number of Swedish schools are available.
An iPhone, iPad and Android location based service that can be customised to connect to any dataset, for the viewing, collecting and editing of point data in the field. The service is versatile and can be combined with a number of different map sources, including google, openstreetmap, mapguide, ArcGIS server etc.
