The DATA-EASY Cloud
The DATA-EASY Cloud simplifies and speeds up acquisition, management and use of field data. Some of the features include:
- Management of data and multiple field devices from desktop computers
- An on-line GIS Interface to view, browse, search and print field data in maps
- An on-line user interface to build Data Collection Forms and push them out to devices in the field
- Near real time data acquisition on a computer or from a field device, watch the data show up in the Cloud as it is collected
To form a cloud, first register with this site. Next, click on Cloud Front in the menu.
|If you "Join a Cloud" on your device, the DATA-EASY Forms Mobile App automatically synchronizes it's data to and from your private, secure cloud database. Once a mobile device or computer joins your cloud it is connected to all the other devices in your cloud and any data replicated from those devices to the cloud database is automatically replicated back down to all the other mobile devices and computers joined to that cloud. Once you have data in your Cloud, you can use it on your computer through the "App Emulator". The App Emulator is a version of the Forms Mobile App which runs in a browser on computers. To do this just "Join a Cloud" in the App Emulator. Once you join the cloud, the data in your cloud database is replicated to and from the computer, just like the mobile devices that are also joined to the cloud. The cloud database is your own private Couch database. You can even use the Couch database management interfaces, such as Futon, to work with the data in those databases. In addition, you can integrate your Couch into your systems, it's open source and very flexible!
Be aware that if the Cloud is not desirable, the Forms Mobile App provides two other methods to transfer the data from the mobile devices to computers in files using an Internet connection or the standard data cable provided by the mobile device manufacturer.
