We are thinking of using an iPad while conducting road surveys for our township. A road survey is one or more days inspecting roads for needed repairs. We would like to dictate comments about a road location and take pictures of the problem. We don't have any experience with iPads nor the program called Numbers. We've been told that audio could be recorded, transcribed and entered into a Numbers cell. Also pictures could be entered/stored in a cell as well. Can picture GPS data be recorded as well and used on Google Maps? In addition we have been told that all of that information could be pushed and stored in the Cloud so it could used by PC's. Is all this possible with the iPad environment? What is the difference between Numbers for iPad ($10) and Numbers for MacBook Pro($20)? Which iPad would recommend?
If all of this is possible we would like to demo the possibilities in 2 weeks to our board of township supervisors.
Thanks in advanced,
