Adding a Photo on an Android Device

Using the EpiCollect app, you can add a photo to every new entry using your mobile's camera. Currently only one photo per entry can be added this photo (along with GPS position and data) is sent centrally for display at a project website.

To add a photo to your new entry, tap the '2.Tap to add photo' button from the main data entry page. This will launch your phone's camera application and you can take a photo as you normally would.

Depending on your handset, once you take a photo, you will have to confirm that you wish to keep this photo, either by tapping 'Done' or similar.

Once you select the picture to assign to your new entry you will be returned to the main data screen and will see that a thumbnail version of the image is present below the 'Tap to enter Form Data' button.

Also, please note that the 'Photo' button text has changed (in a similar fashion to the Assign GPS button text) to indicate that you have completed this part of the data entry for this new entry. You may also tap the photo button to change the photo if you are not happy with the image you have taken.

Now that you have assigned a GPS position and attached a photo to your new entry you are ready to enter the Form data that has been defined by the project's form.
