Viewing Entries on a map using an Android Device

Within EpiCollect we provide the ability to view and filter data collected on your handset using Google Maps. You can either view and filter entries collected on your phone (local entries) or request (and view/filter) entries from the central project website entries that have been submitted (by you or other users) to the project website (remote entries).

NOTE: To use the mapping facilities within EpiCollect on the phone you need to be connected to either a mobile data network (3G etc) or a wireless network.

 

 

To view your (and/or remote) entries using Google Maps on the phone, from the homescreen click 'Display Map' (as left).

You will now be presented with a Google Map and, if GPS is enabled, your current location will be displayed (blue dot). A compass is displayed in the top left of the map and, by clicking the menu button on your phone, you can specify the style of map you wish to view etc.

 

 

We are now going to display entries on the map. Firstly we will display all entries that you have collected on the phone you are using which we term 'Local Entries'.
