With the development of information technology, the working style and live style of people change a lot. Intelligent mobile terminals running Android system become popular in recent years. They are portable and powerful. Field data collection is an important job for researchers and personnel of nature reserve. The traditional method for filed data is error-prone and inefficient. In this paper, we implemented a field data collection application on Android tablets. We transform traditional paper data collection forms into electronic templates. Android tablets can generate data collection interface from a template automatically. With this application, people working in filed can record data easily and efficiently. Meanwhile, this application can integrate tracks with photos, videos and audios to illustrate human activity in detail. At the end of this paper, we look forward the future work.
