Mobile data collection improves the effectiveness, correctness and consistency of datacollection. Open Data Kit (ODK) is a modular and simple to use set of open source applications that support structured questionnaire design, data collection, real-time data transfer, and database management. Collect supports a wide range of data i.e. location, audio, images, video, barcodes, signatures, multiple-choice, free text, and numeric answers.
ODK also provides a way to collect and store geo-referenced information, along with a safe, secure and powerful ONA dashboard to visualize, analyze and manipulate ground data for specific needs. It enables an understanding of the data for decision-making, research, business, disaster management, agriculture and more.
