My forthcoming iPhone app called Kennedy allows you to not only capture the now with surrounding context but also lets you export that data as either a CSV or JSON file. That means you can then use it to create data visualisations or even 3D models from your data! The video shows the exported CSV data used to create a sphere that maps the weather conditions - spiky bits are when it was raining and non-spiky was when it was sunny. Nothing earth shattering but kind of fun.
