About this app

Epicollect5 is a free and easy-to-use mobile data-gathering platform developed by the CGPS Team of Oxford BDI and publicly available at https://five.epicollect.net

It provides both the web and mobile application for the generation of forms (questionnaires) and freely hosted project websites for data collection.

Data are collected (including GPS and media) using multiple devices and all data can be viewed on a central server (via map, tables, charts).

Data can be exported in CSV and JSON format

The User Guide can be found at https://docs.epicollect.net

This app is exactly what I was looking for! It was easy to build my form and accomplished most of what I need for recording field data. There are two drawbacks: photos cannot be batch downloaded (you have to download each photo one at a time, which is a real time suck), and photo quality saved in the cloud is inferior to what would be saved on my phone. I will continue to use the app, but not record my photos in the data. Highly recommended otherwise!

This is a excellent application. It is easy to learn, develop, modify, use in the field, revise data, transfer data to spread sheet, and develop a site map. We are using it to survey and catalog the contents of a 5 acre garden of plants and animals with hundreds of native and imported species with GPS locations, photographs and notes. Instructions for use are helpful however not as explicit as it could be. Trial and error was necessary to make it work for our specific use. Because of its ease of use and capability of modification during the early stages of the project when finding unexpected discoveries the site could be taylored on the fly for improved specificity. Feel free to check out the Epicollect5, Everglades Wonder Gardens.

A nice data collection app. However, the inability to edit existing data on a mobile device makes it unsuitable for our needs. Thanks for the reply. Perhaps I should have been more precise: "It is not possible to edit downloaded remote entries directly and re-upload them". Also, "If you need to edit entries from your mobile device, the only way is to use the web application instead of the mobile app". In areas without network coverage, being able to edit via the website is of no use.
