FreeRanger is an Electronic Field Guide, implemented as a Java2 Mobile Applet, so it can be carried in a smart phone or PDA, and used to identify wildlife, minerals, or anything else for which a paper field guide might normally be used.

The current status is pre-alpha.


At present most of the documentation (and there is not much yet), is on the Wiki


Source and a J2ME applet JAR file can be downloaded from the download area
