Viewing Remote Entries on a map using an Android Device

peopleandroid

 

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) from the central project website entries others have submitted to the project website (remote entries).

To display remote entries, from the 'Menu' tap 'Update Remote Entries'.

This will connect to the central project website and download entries you and/or others have submitted to the project website.

Please note, no photos are downloaded, simply the text data and GPS location.

In a similar fashion to local entries by clicking on any pushpin, the ID and Title field for that entry is shown and full details of records can be viewed (without photos as mentioned)

All local entries are coloured BLUE and all remote entries are coloured RED.

You can zoom-in, tap to drag the map around, and by tapping on a 'pushpin' you can view the details of a particular entry.

Note: by clicking the 'menu' button on your phone and selecting 'More' and then My Location' your position will appear on the screen (presuming that you have GPS enabled).

Note: all remote entries are now also available to view via the 'List entries' screen - simply click 'Menu' and choose the records (local / remote or both) that you would like to display.

 

To make use of the mapping for purposes other than displaying the location of data entries, we have built in the ability to filter the data based on the form elements used to record text data, which we will now detail.
