Mostly Old Links:

Much of what’s below has been replaced by the Google Sites pages for Group 4 and LETS Day in October. These links remain here in case there are historical items of interest to the future.

The Google Drive folder for LETS Protocols is here. Most of these documents are also organized in the Google Sites mentioned above.

ODK Introduction (by ODK)

Open Data Kit (ODK) is an open-source suite of tools that helps organizations author, field, and manage mobile data collection solutions. Our goals are to make open-source and standards-based tools which are easy to try, easy to use, easy to modify and easy to scale.

ODK’s core developers are researchers at the University of Washington’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering department and active members of Change, a multi-disciplinary group at UW exploring how technology can improve the lives of under-served populations around the world.

Fusion Tables

Fusion Tables is an experimental data visualization web application to gather, visualize, and share data tables. Filter and summarize across hundreds of thousands of rows. Chart, map or export the information. Collaborate with other users by merging various tables, using public data or sharing your work with others using Google Drive.
