The Internet System for Networked Sensor Experimentation (iSENSE) is web system for collaborative scientific inquiry. The iSENSE site enables users to describe their own scientific experiments, upload and share data, and create and save dynamic data visualizations. The DataWalk application was designed to incorporate the GPS sensors innate in most mobile Android devices in order to record and autonomously upload changes in the user’s geospatial coordinates. Upon stopping the recording, users may choose to visualize their data on the iSENSE site, examine specific data points individually, and compare their walks to those of other users. Users can analyze their data on iSENSE to determine their traveling speed and recall where they visited.
