MiniVAN - data survey app
Tonight I field tested an app designed to collect data from multiple places or people. It’s called MiniVAN. I used it to collect data from potential voters while canvassing for a candidate but it can easily be used for a variety of purposes. It can be downloaded from the iOS App Store here.
The app keeps track of multiple locations and associates a form with each one. (Unfortunately the map pinpointing the locations gets cut off.) It does however tag addresses which a letter code,letting you see at a glance the places that are trending in a particular area of concern.
The user gets a chart summarizing his own collected data (what percentage of targets are coded issue A as opposed to B, C, or D) and of course the data is fed back to the main CAN database in realtime.
