    Hm. Thanks @srgdamiano, thats one way of doing it. The use case I envisage is pretty simple. Lets take a single technician with a portable water quality monitor, like a YSI or something. He/She drops it into a river at Position A, records data. Then turns device off, moves to Position B, records data etc etc. Once “home” uploads the data to a GIS platform. Next week, repeat the process. Of course it could be a different technician with a different device but in the same location.

    I spoke with @ensign today on the phone and will keep the conversation going, we are onto something!
