ODK in rural area

Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone had or is working on a project using ODK but in a
rural area where there is no internet or phone service? If you are can you
say what methods have been employed to transfer data from the phones to
computer and which also enables you to extract the data in such a way that
you are able to make maps etc.

Alternatively if you can point me to possible data collection package or
persons that can help.

Thanks.

Hi Roxroy,

I'd guess that a lot of ODK deployments are in disconnected
environments. To transfer data from the phones to a computer, use ODK
Briefcase (http://opendatakit.org/use/briefcase/). To generate offline
maps, try http://geoodk.com/mobile-data-conversion-kit.

If you need more help, I'd encourage you to read through the guides at
http://opendatakit.org/help/training-guides.

See my post just before this for some additional solutions for data
transfer provided by Mitch. For maps, the local aggregate save as KLM works
fine and possibly for csv. It seems a little complex to set up but it does
work.The other way is to open the XML in XL and save as an XLS. You may
need to separate the lats and longs (from one column to two) and import
into a GIS. Global Mapper is an excellent program and reasonably priced
(relative). GM will open just about any GIS or CAD and save as any. I pull
in my gpx files and save as klm for google, tab for mapinfo and shp for
ARC. GM will open and map a CSV file but I had no luck with my conversion
from XML to CSV using XL. The aggregate CSV may work.
I could not get Briefcase to recognize the SD or the device storage where
ODK resides. I am pretty sure it is due to android version 4.2.2 or the
device (sony xperia z ultra) which does not let me install programs to the
SD..
The only problem I have found in converting as above is the order of data
in the xl file is not the same order as on the form in the device.

Hi Rox,
My team is working in rural Kenya without internet access. We are putting
our forms directly onto the tablets we are using by manually saving the xml
forms, sent via email from me in the US to our program leads in Kenya, into
the ODK forms directroy on the tablets. We are pulling data from the
tablets out into excel using ODK Briefcase. I also find it easy to use
google earth or arch gis to make maps from GPS coordinates collected with
ODK collect. I hope your project goes well!
Cheers,
Sarah Pfeil
