What is the problem? Please be detailed.
Can you insert a static image into a form to provide /illustrate how to do a task (i.e like the note question type but in jpeg format- for measuring a tree for example) see attached image.
I can not find any information about this approach is it possible?
Please see http://xlsform.org/en/#media.
This is missing from the ODK docs because there's some uncertainty about where exactly to put it (https://github.com/opendatakit/docs/issues/749) if you have a suggestion, that would be very helpful. Did you expect the information somewhere and not find it?
Depending on your programming skills, there was an ODK app that did the calculations "RangeFinder" https://github.com/opendatakit/rangefinder
It has been dormant for MANY MANY years (like 8 years). If you have the funding or the programming skills it might be something to look into to resurrect. It was meant for determining information about Trees.
That's cool, @W_Brunette!
To be clear, the range finder app is not related to the question about inserting images in a form. It's a standalone external application that implements an idea similar to the one in the image @Wildscapes posted using the device sensors. See this article for the technique it implements. It doesn't look like it actually can be called from a Collect external value question so it would be used as a separate app and the value would have to be manually entered.
Yes, thanks @LN for clarifying that while my addition was relevant to the question/topic, it was a tangent and not an immediate answer to the problem.
A post was split to a new topic: Add clickable URL links to hints
Thank you @Xiphware and @LN, the suggestions and infomation you have given is much appreciated. I think that is what I will do the link option. I will try implementing it this week having to focus my ti.e else where at the minute.
Please note, my hint URL is just something I added to my own custom XForms client app (iXForms); its not supported by ODK Collect at this time. So please refer to @LN's link for showing question pictures in Collect today.
