With new mobile data collection tools your organization can set up checks, hints to help the interviewer, easy ways to retrieve the data from your mobile system, and upload everything into your computer.
More and more organizations are using mobile devices to collect data in the field. Open Data Kit (ODK) is a suite of tools that allows data collection using Android mobile devices and data submission to an online server. The data collection process can be streamlined by replacing traditional paper forms with electronic forms that allow text, numeric data, GPS, photo, video, barcodes, and audio uploads to an online server.
Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open-source set of tools which help organizations author, field, and manage mobile data collection solutions. ODK is ideal for socio-economic surveys with GPS locations and images. ODK provides an out-of-the-box solution for users to:
