How do i access data / information in opendatakit database?

I am wondering how to get any data like latitude, longitude or any
other content from the database to display it on a map.

Is there any kind of API / wrapper / service where i could use http
requests with xml to send some kind of filter and receive a xml
response with all desired information?

Export using Type: KML will produce a file that can be loaded into Google
Earth for map displays.

The Visualize button also allows you to display maps. Before you can use
that, you need to go to the Site Admin / Preferences page and paste in a
Google Maps key (this need only be done once). After a key is entered, the
Visualize button will give you the Map option.

thx for your answer.

Lets say i have 100 datarecords in my database. Every datarecord has
lat, long, picture and a textfield.

I would like to formulate with a c# or java application some kind of
xml-request to the whole system to specifically request 5 datarecords
to be returned to me. And those 5 datarecords i would like to get as a
response in a xml/json/binaryFile or whatever, parse the response into
an Array in C# or Java and process that in my application, which can
draw some Points, according to the lat, long, on my map. And lets say
that if i click on one of the points, the matching picture and
textfield would be displayed.

I kinda do not understand the concept behind the communication. How to
send a request for information and receive a response.

Look at ODK Briefcase. It can download all the data from ODK Aggregate to
your computer. Then, you can troll the downloaded directory structure for
the data; each submission is stored as a separate xml file.

You could also copy the code within Briefcase that scans the directory
structure and emits a CSV file.

The code is at

Another approach might be to stream the data to Fusion Tables or
Spreadsheets and use those APIs to pull the data.
