CyberTracker: Free GPS Field Data Collection System

With the launch of their Android version, I became aware of CyberTracker, a free "GPS Field Data Collection System that turns your smartphone into a sophisticated tracking and monitoring device". It's a non-profit organization and they mention free software several times, but not certain that is open source software, anyone knows?

From the website: "You can use CyberTracker on a Smartphone or handheld computer to record any type of observation. CyberTracker, which requires no programming skills, allows you to customize an Application for your own data collection needs. […] CyberTracker is the most efficient way to gather large quantities of geo-referenced data for field observations at a speed and level of detail not possible before. Observations can be entered with a simple Radio List or a Check List. Number and text fields can also be entered by means of conventional key pads or keyboards."

Plenty of screenshots here and the list of features.

  1. Here's the answer I got from the developers:

    "The software is completely free and will always be so.

    While we are using GitHub repositories, we haven’t been able to go open, because we use a couple of commercial components on the desktop. We’re hoping to refactor and build a QGIS plugin so we can split things up and have something useful for the Open Source community, but we’re not there yet."
