*[Overview]( • [Bibliography]( • [Design]( • [Project]( • [Community]( • [Team]( • [Timeline](* # Overview In December 2019 the [Australian Research Data Commons]( (ARDC) [awarded a team of researchers led by Macquarie University $600,000]( over three years to build a digital platform for data collection in the field and offline. This was matched by $720,920 in co-investment from project partners. ## What are we doing? This project will see the re-build of [FAIMS Mobile]( a robust data collection tool now at the end of its digital life, making the most of current software stacks and research infrastructure. FAIMS 3.0 will accommodate diverse data capture, localisation and complex workflows, and provide seamless synchronisation, backup and version control, just like FAIMS Mobile. It will also be **cross-platform** (Android, iOS and Desktop) and **self-serve** allowing uses to customise and deploy modules through a graphic user interface. See more about our [design approach]( ## Why are we doing it? Fieldwork is time consuming and researchers are always looking at ways to increase efficiency in data recording in the field but that’s not the full story. We are also required to share our data in wholly reusable ways following [FAIR principles]( This is far more easily done when that data is born digital but creating bespoke software is expensive to build and onerous to maintain. FAIMS 3.0 will allow researchers to customise their workflows from a shared platform. ## Partner Institutions * [Australian Research Data Commons]( * [Macquarie University]( * [UNSW Australia]( * [LaTrobe University]( * [Australian National University]( * [Aarhus University]( * [CSIRO]( * [AuScope]( * [Geological Survey of South Australia]( * [University of Sydney]( * [University of Adelade]( * [Lantern Heritage]( * [Harvard University]( * [Brown University]( * [Yale University]( * [Open Context]( * [Digital Antiquity]( * [AARnet](
