I’m looking into developing a web based virtual scouting system for the upcoming game which will be open source and obtain team and match data from tournaments along with scouting forms for teams.
I would like to know what people would want to see in a system like this as I do plan on releasing it later in the year (before NZ regionals hopefully) and would like something that would seem to suit people’s needs.
It will be written with PHP & MySQL and I hope to be able to make it open source and freely distributable for other teams to run on their systems.
I am also looking into mobile phone apps to feed data back to a central database but this is a long while away
I looked at this website and it I truly amazing (what I had hoped to do plus a lot more). The only question I have is can it use other events from other countries (I’m in New Zealand).
The wifi issue could be fixed with a bluetooth personal network between devices which get data from a local server (laptop) or a 3G enabled device, however I have to look into the limits of a bluetooth network on mobile devices and if they support the networking needed.
