KoBoToolbox - Tools for Data Collection
KoBoToolbox is a suite of tools for field data collection for use in challenging environments. Software is free and open source. Most users are people working in humanitarian crises, as well as aid professionals and researchers working in developing countries. Teams of developers and researchers are based in Cambridge, MA and many other places around the world.
Quickly collecting reliable information in a humanitarian crisis – especially following a natural disaster such as a large earthquake or a typhoon taking place in a poor country – is the critical link to saving the lives of the most vulnerable. Understanding the population’s needs is often neglected for lack of quick means to gather and analyze this crucial information. KoBoToolbox, developed by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, is an open source suite of tools for data collection and analysis in humanitarian emergencies and other challenging environments that was built to address this gap. KoBoToolbox is funded entirely through generous grants and donations from our partners.
