Transforming field research by overcoming the ‘digitisation bottleneck’, and reducing the cost of creating digital and FAIR-compliant data.
FAIMS 3.0 will re-engineer Field Acquired Information Management Systems (FAIMS) Mobile, a mature and stable, but dated, system for producing custom electronic notebooks for data collection in diverse field situations. This project will make quality, comprehensive datasets the norm, and the platform will integrate with existing virtual environments for data analysis and repositories, including AARNet’s CloudStor and SWAN, and Auscope’s Virtual Research Environment (AVRE) for Geoscience.
FAIMS 3.0 is an ARDC Research Platforms project.

Who is this project for?
- Field based data gatherers
- Organisations or project groups working in a field based scenario with a need for high quality data gathering
What does this project enable?
Field based researchers will be able to gather high quality data and feed it directly into a number of integrated services using the FAIR principles.
