KDXplore Field Data Management Software

This software application helps manage and curate data collected with KDSmart in nurseries, yield trials, production, and observation fields. Electronic fieldbooks can be uploaded, arranged and distributed to various electronic devices that are using KDSmart. After returning from the field, the data taken can be viewed and curated in KDXplore. Some simple statistical analyses are available to help in the data curation. KDXplore was developed by Diversity Arrays Technology (DArT) in collaboration with CIMMYT.
