Filtering Entries on a map using an Android Device

peopleandroid

 

You can select what data is displayed in a number of ways (data filtering). For example, if you had setup a project looking at the location of a number of endangered plant species you may wish to see if others have submitted entries for a particular species.

To bring up filtering options from the 'Menu' tap 'Filter'

 

The Filter menu contains those fields within the form that are available for filtering (all form elements except long text fields). Text fields are listed and you can search the data by clicking the checkbox next to the name and entering a search term.

'Select One' form elements are clickable and allow the selection of a value (for example, using our simple demo project we select below the 'What is your age?' dropdown and choose '41 to 50').

The criterion you use for filtering is reflected on the map by the display of only those entries that fulfil your filtering criterion (right screenshot below).

That concludes our run through of how to create a project and load and collect data using EpiCollect on Android devices.

We will now move on to the facilities available at the central project website where you can download, view data on maps, chart and filter all data submitted to a particular project.
