Customising -Viewing Project Data


You can view all data collected using either the mapping interface (see here) or as a table containing all records.


Tabular View

When selecting the Browse Project data link from a project homepage you will initially see a table containing all entries submitted by all phones (Android and iPhone devices) to a project database.




By using the scrollbars, all data can be seen. You can re-order the columns (in a similar way to that used when using a spreadsheet such as Excel). Also, if you click to the right of a column heading you can sort data by a column and /or choose which columns you wish to display in the table (see screenshot above).


When clicking on a row (which corresponds to a particular entry) any photograph associated with that entry will be displayed below the table (see following screenshot).


Downloading Data

Below the table and to the right, a dropdown box is present which allows you to download data in a number of formats:


  • XML : The XML will be formatted as in the form definition for the Project
  • CSV : Comma separated values which can be loaded easily into Excel for example.

Please note, photos will NOT be included within the download formats. Instead, a direct URL, which links directly to each photo, is included.

The XML format adheres to that generated using the Form Builder when a project was set up and certain TAGS will be project specific. Please see the developer section for further details


The most common and visual way of exploring data submitted to a particular project will be by using the mapping interface which we will now detail.
