Pedon Vault gives users nationwide a way to share data by populating a national database of sites that can be used by educators, scientists, farmers, landowners, schools, soil judging teams, the general public and many more according to Jason Nemecek, Wisconsin State Soil Scientist.  According to Nemecek, the app records soil exposures across the country and populates a national database.  Interested users can identify field sites that demonstrate good soil profiles with accompanying data. The Survey123 for ArcGIS is a simple and intuitive form-centric data gathering solution that makes creating, sharing, and analyzing surveys possible in just three easy steps: ask questions (quickly design powerful surveys and publish them into ArcGIS), get answers (enable your workforce with the Survey123 for ArcGIS mobile app to capture answers in the field), and make the best decisions (analyze answers from the field in real-time to support decision making).
