Greetings from Dana!

I'm an American, currently based in the UK where I studied and met my husband.

I help teams across countries to design, implement, and analyse face-to-face household surveys. I specialise in survey support to countries with severely outdated or inaccurate census data (censuses are typically used to select representative samples of households for surveys). I tend to use gridded population datasets such as WorldPop instead.

I developed the workflow and interface for GridSample .org which enables non-technical survey experts to select gridded population surveys in low- and intermittant-bandwidth settings. I also provided input into revisions to Campaigns.hotosm .org in 2019. Many of the surveys I support use OMK and ODK to navigate to survey clusters, perform household listings, and collect data.

I am deeply committed to interdisciplinary cross-cultural collaborations, and have been a contributor to the Integrated Deprived Area Mapping System (IdeaMaps) Network. The IdeaMaps Network aims to integrated existing (largely siloed) communities of "slum" mappers to be able to produce routine, accurate maps of deprived urban areas at scale. If you're interested, you can read more about our approach and methods elsewhere.

I enjoy singing songs and strumming my ukulele outside of work.

Best, Dana

Hi, I am Jarek and I'm a Czechia based developer currently dealing with problems of waste disposal and monitoring of illegal dumps. I already used ODK Aggregate in a previous project a couple of years ago. Now I am switching to ODK Central, which seems to offer much more user comfort and options. There are some troubles on the way, which is the reason why I am here, but after everything is sorted out I am really looking forward to be doing some serious data collecting with this great program suite.
