I just found ODK and liked it alot. I will have a project for bat conservation and I would like to use ODK as my primary way of data collection tool for our Science for nature Foundation. I hope to find some finances to help with the development of the tools. I need to read alot of course before that.
A have few questions:
- Is there a way to have gps track for each form as start and end with the timer logger? Our way of filed work is to have a track during walking with bat sound detector, and we need the distance in order to do some calculations afterwards. When working with other species we need also track + gps point for every animal we see/catch in the same time. I see that there is a feature for track a path but it has to be on screen on and also you cannot fill out other fields during the track and also I need to add even points during the track. So may be I am talking about background tracking and having the track as part of the form.
- May I develop the ODK (the server, app and etc.) so to make a tool that is for nature conservation usage? I mean is it allowed to modify some stuff or I need to have permission from someone? ODK team?
Probably questions that you have discussed already. I have tried to read before this post, but I could not find probably exactly the same questions. Also checked on Google Apps that there are like atleast 3 apps for data collection, they are almost the same with fine tuning and I wonder if it is OK to make even another version in other languages or new features?
Thank you in advance.
