3rd KDSmart app workshop

The International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) extends a cordial invitation to participate in the training workshop on the use of the KDSmart app. This will be held in Texcoco, State of Mexico, on December 20, 2017 (from 9:00 – 17:00 hrs).

The objective of this workshop is to train participants in the use of KDSmart, which is an Android app that captures data, but with digital format to record phenotypic data in the field, greenhouse or laboratory environment using a tablet or smartphone. KDSmart uses Excel files that are easily imported and exported to your computer. Among other useful features, KDSmart allows the user to specify ranges of values for the features of interest, which reduces errors during data collection, and integrates with barcode readers (where hardware allows) to semi-automate the collection of phenotypic values.

This workshop is intended for breeders, researchers/professors, technicians and / or students from the public and private sectors, or who participate in all those activities that include the collection of phenotypic data from any environment, with high accuracy and error reduction characteristics. .

It is necessary to bring your own cell phone or tablet (5 to 7″) with Android® version 4.0.3 and laptop to download and explore data collected during the practical class. It is also necessary to have the Excel app on the cell phone. KDSmart can be downloaded from the Google Store or at the following link
