Hi Guys,

We are potentialy interested in using ODK for some data collection exercise but would need to know how the GPS accuracy measure is calculated in ODK in order to have a good understanding on how reliable this measure is.

Many thanks therefore in advance for your answer on the above and best regards,

Steeve

And you can set the accuracy threshold for automatically accepting a
geo-coordinate. The default accuracy is 5m.
