Traditionally the most common approach of recording field data is with the help of pen and paper. Some enterprises use MS Excel and a couple of apps to do the same. This method has various limitations- it is slow, non-scalable and suffers from numerous manual errors.
Field Data Collection requires planning and resources.
What kinds of data do we collect?
The variety of data that is being collected today is huge. From text to number to images and geo-locations: the diversity in the classes of data is massive. Field data collection thus wouldn’t be very convenient with the traditional instruments. Even usage of software which can record field data but aren’t specifically build for it, doesn’t resolve the issues. Field data collection still remains a big headache.
