Smap Consulting has been creating software and supporting the collection of data using mobile devices since 2008. Mobile phones for data collection have proven themselves to be substantially cheaper and more flexible than the use of paper survey or custom devices such as PDAs.
Smap Situation Assessment Method
The Smap method aims to collect and assess data in real time. During assessment the need for more data may be identified. The Smap Evaluation Tools allow this additional data to be quickly collected resulting in a more complete picture of the situation. The data can be exported for detailed analysis using specialist tools such as spread sheets or statistical analysis packages.
