Description Mobile data acquisition is a vital proposal for the fieldwork in a wide range of sciences. Current advances in telecommunications and high bandwidth availability enable effective wireless access to geodata in a field and bi-directional communication with the server site. Aim of the MobilDat project is to improve support of field mapping with mobile devices. This improvement is based on the idea of map field and user interface adaptation to current activity. Required adaptation is achieved by taking into account edited features, minimizing text inputs by iconic tags and pattern lists, and imprecise input (sketch) enablement. One of key abilities of the MobilDat system is a validation and automated generation of final map on the server site, thus minimizing the computation demand on the mobile client side. Validated results can be sent back to the field surveyor for additional corrections if necessary.
