ODK Build
ODK Build is a form designer with a drag-and-
drop user interface. Build is an HTML5 web
application and works best for designing simple
For more powerful form designers, try
XLS2XForm, Vellum, or Kobo, or PurcForms.
ODK Collect
ODK Collect renders forms into a sequence of input
prompts that apply form logic, entry constraints, and
repeating sub-structures. Users work through the
prompts and can save the submission at any point.
Finalized submissions can be sent to (and new forms
downloaded from) a server. Currently, ODK Collect
uses the Android platform, supports a wide variety of
prompts (text, number, location, multimedia,
barcodes), and works well without network
ODK Aggregate
ODK Aggregate provides a ready-to-deploy server and
data repository to:
provide blank forms to ODK Collect (or other OpenRosa
accept finalized forms (submissions) from ODK Collect and
manage collected data,
visualize the collected data using maps and simple graphs,
export data (e.g., as CSV files for spreadsheets, or as KML
files for Google Earth), and
publish data to external systems (e.g., Google Spreadsheets
or Google Fusion Tables).
