Abstract. Smartphones capable of receiving Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) signals and location-based mobile applications have been finding new usage areas day by day. The most popular mobile applications have become a part of our life in many ways, especially in spatial data collection, logistics, sports activities, routing, navigation, information exchange, shopping, emergencies and entertainment. The location-based feature has been the characteristic of the apps realized in real-time or near real-time. Within the scope of this study, a mobile application that can be used on smartphones with the Android operating system and is designed to save time and location information during the desired time and sampling interval and send it to the desired e-mail address is presented. The development stages of this location-based mobile application developed using open-source codes and its use on smartphones were shown. The usage areas of the application and a realized test study were explained.
