Now that you are aware of the functionalities, you will learn to collect data on a project. Here is an example:
We are to AmigoCloud’s office in Perú, and we want to update/fix certain vegetation information. Previously, We use the web app to create a schema of our datasets.
We compare the dataset with the current situation:
Comparison of the context with the current dataset
We note that the information provided in the “vegetation” dataset (in green dots) is not entirely right or updated with the current situation. To correct it, we will have to create, edit or delete records.
Create new records
We are located right at the site of the sample in order to make an in-situ collection.
Select > "New Record at Current Location" > Save > select dataset to edit:
Adding new record
When we are selecting the dataset to be edited, the data collection form is displayed to fill it out. The mobile form in this example is composed of a dataset and related tables. It also has visibility conditions for storing text, picklists, photos, and decimal numbers.
If everything is ok with the location of the geometry and all the data is perfectly filled, we send the form data pressing the “SEND” button, otherwise, press the delete icon
Now we have already done the data collection of our first vegetation specimen.
Filling out the mobile form
You might need to edit the geometry, the content of the form, or even delete the entire record.
Editing the geometry: now we identified a record in the dataset whose geographical location or their geometry is wrong, we simply press on the object to be edited, select the geometry edition tapping on "Edit" button* and drag the point to the chosen site, press “SAVE” and then “SEND” to submit the changes.
(*) This option is only available when we have the edition of the field for wkb_geometry enable
Editing the geometry
Editing the mobile form: In this case we just want to edit the form information. To do it we press on the object whose information we want to edit. Then, update the new information on the mobile form. Press "SEND" to change the data.
Editing the mobile form
Delete a record
Now we identify a record that is not compatible with our observation and we want to delete it. Press on the object and press the delete icon to confirm the action.
