What is data collection all about? Well, according to Wikipedia, Data collection is the process of gathering and measuring information on targeted variables in an established systematic fashion, which then enables one to answer relevant questions and evaluate outcomes. Phew! It might sound a bit complicated for the average person to get their head around but, if I told you that it's the way that researchers, educators and innovators gather information to analyze the way that we live, it might be a little easier to comprehend.

The information that these researchers base their knowledge on isn't just plucked out of thin air, of course. It's laboriously gathered from sources from all over the world. So, where do they get this information from and how easy is it to access it? Well, Conseris is a data collection app for Android and iOS that makes it very easy to gather all kinds of data from people the world over in order to create surveys and analyze our lives and the way we live and do business. It taps into data from members and volunteers from the four corners of the globe and delivers it in real time.

This very smart app gathers data from anywhere, whether you are on or offline, and automatically uploads it to your centralized Conseris hub where it can be collected in the relevant project folder for analysis. You can take photos, record voice memos, scan barcodes, submit GPS coordinates and answer multiple choice and free text questions from anywhere on the planet. Once you've gathered all this information, it's easy to explore and visualize your collected data using a variety of flow charts.

To start off with, you need to design the project that you wish to analyze. Click the relevant fields to accept the data you wish to collect and you are ready to go.  Now you just have to collect the data that you need. Each project has its own private and public mobile code so you should head to the home page to enter the relevant mobile share code into the mobile app and download the project so you can begin collecting data. You can either select previously collected data or search for new stuff. You can choose whether you want your project to be visible or invisible for the time being and, as the administrator of the project, you get to decide which members of your team get access to the information.

Now you can explore and analyze the data you have collected. Your information is presented to you in a variety of visualizations and you can choose whichever one best suits the data you are trying to present. You can change the data at any time by altering the fields in the workspace and simply click on the visualization to explore each in more detail. When you are satisfied with the results you can click download or share the information with the relevant parties wherever they are around the world.

I'm sure we've all wondered at some point or other where surveys and analysis information actually comes from and how it is complied into easy to understand visualizations. Well, it comes from apps like Conseris. Whether it is the gathering of information for your local business or on a more global scale, Conseris simplifies the process. This app makes it easier for research teams to collect and analyze data and you can use any of your devices to gather information for analysis no matter wherever in the world it originates from. You can create a public project for free with a private project costing as little as 25 bucks with access to everything Conseris has to offer. Conseris is available now for Android, iPhone and iPad from Google Play or the App Store.
