Hi, I am Karana,
I am a freelance consultant specializing in conflict management

I bounce around west and central Africa but am based in Côte d'Ivoire.

I first got involved in ODK when I promised to conduct a field assessment and stumbled across this platform. I am self-taught and have been using ODK for about 4 years now - a total of maybe 10 large-scale data collection exercises usually in conflict zones and centered around household surveys of the main conflict issues affected a community or refugee camp.

I have web site but it is fairly dead. Need to reanimate it on another platform since Weebly is no long accessible in Côte d'Ivoire.

I love ODK for its simplicity in design but I have been looking to learn more about the recent updates and looking to find out more how to use it via SMS

Hi out there

I´m Danny working as GIS professionel, drone pilot, python programmer, IoT ninja and open source backer. I work in the municipal sector in Denmark. I´ve used ODK some years ago and started focusing on it once again. My aim is to build a setup that connects to a postgres database. Finally the users will be able to see the collected data and photos within QGIS and on a web-based map service. If accomplished we will do a Danish language package for the app and do our best to distribute this great product. Thank you for this.

I read Danish. I would be interested in hearing more about your project and what the municipality hopes to do with it. I have been working governance at the city level in West Africa and see IDK as a great tool for data collection (I use it a lot).
