Our data collection platform, Collect, has been solving diverse problems for the past three years. While helping national ministries, philanthropies, corporates, and other organizations take smarter decisions, we often come across use cases — or as we like to call them, opportunities — to expand its functionality and take its skills up a notch.

In the past, we have added different features that make Collect the world’s most resilient data collection tool, capable of catering to the most challenging data collection projects. Recently, we realized that while Collect was great at capturing high-quality data, we could make it even easier to consume and act upon that data through quick insights.

That is how we ended up integrating a feature that would change the experience of using Collect forever — a response map.

What is a response map?

A response map is a visual representation of the responses collected as a part of a data collection project. Using it, you can view all the responses collected by your surveyors on a detailed map.

See it in action below:

What is so special about a response map?

A response map lets you track the geographical progress of your data collection project. You can get insights at a glance and understand the progress of your project across different regions without having to analyze, filter, and then make sense of all your data. Moreover, you can filter the map based on the surveyor and date of data collection.

In a nutshell, a response map helps you:

  1. Track the progress of your project
  2. Identify and solve for the bottlenecks
  3. Understand what is working for you
  4. Allocate your efforts and resources intelligently

In addition to the response map, we have added a bunch of other features to our data collection app, Collect, that will help you make your data collection project smarter and more efficient. Sign up here to avail your free trial.
