Epicollect5 Data Collection User Guide
Epicollect5 is a mobile & web application for free and easy data collection.
It provides both the web and mobile application for the generation of forms (questionnaires) and freely hosted project websites for data collection. Projects are created by using the web application at five.epicollect.net (see how to create a project) then downloaded to the device to perform the data collection (see how to add a project to the mobile app).
Data are collected (including GPS and media) using multiple devices and all data can be viewed on a central server (via map, tables and charts).
Data can be exported in csv and json format
The mobile app is available for both Android (4.4+) and iOS (8+)
Epicollect5 is 100% free to use without any limits(*). You can create as many projects as you like and upload as many entries as you like. Epicollect5 is financially supported by the Wellcome Trust Foundation and we implement open source technologies to be able to provide the service for free, forever.
(*)Please be aware a fair usage policy still applies. For example, if you upload 500 videos at 500MB each that will be 250GB of storage, which is too much. While nothing stops you from doing that, our resources are limited and Epicollect5 is not a free storage solution.
