Experiment Note API
It would be neat if there was a web services API for storing notes during an experiment. Researchers commonly take their own notes during testing of a specimen. I’m not sure how much of this makes it up to nees.org.
I would like to add a field to our camera control software that allows notes to be recorded at a step/ramp of an experiment by an operator. If my software could call a NEES web service to store the note, that would be great.
A website for viewing and editing notes would also be useful. It would provide a timeline of events. For example, when sounds are heard during long tests. Another idea is to use the notes could be used during the construction phase to record dates of activities.
