About Ivent

Ivent is an application to be installed on a handheld Windows Mobile device. It is used for field inventory of sample plots. The inventory of a sample plot includes the registration of tree and site characteristics. The application can retrieve data from peripheral devices (through Bluetooth (TM)), including a digital caliper (for tree diameter measurement), a clinometer (for tree height measurement), a GPS, and a new tree positioning device (PosTex).
