Tell me more about this new survey app!

A:

Sure! We will be using Survey123 for ArcGIS to collect our PIT Count data. This survey app is a simple and intuitive to use, and is available to download for free in the Apple App and Google Play stores. 

There are several advantages to switching from paper surveys to an app survey for the Point-in-Time Count. Here are a few we like:

  • Using an app will improve data quality overall;
  • It includes built-in skip logic for the questions making it much easier to use than paper surveys;
  • It helps cut down on paper waste;
  • Without as many paper surveys to enter, it speeds up our timeline for data analysis;
  • Data is secured by the ESRI Cloud server;
  • The built-in GPS function will provide location data that will be useful to our on-going systems work;
  • There is no need for wifi/data connection while out in the field, making it a smart choice for PIT Count night.
