Download field layout and trait definition for Android Field Book

These tools provide a interface to the Android Field Book program created by the Poland Lab. Before using these tools it is necessary to import a field layout into the database. In the Field Book program the range is the first level division and refers to the row of the field. The second level division is the plot. All other columns are considered Extra Information. The program moves through the field row by row for measurements.

In 2009 the Toronto International Data Release Workshop agreed on a policy statement about prepublication data sharing. Accordingly, the data producers are making many of the datasets in T3 available prior to publication of a global analysis. Guidelines for appropriate sharing of these data are given in the excerpt from the Toronto Statement.

I agree to the Data Usage Policy as specified in Toronto Statement.
