When capturing geo-data, it is often required to fill in a form related to the surveyed point, line or area. The forms set up can simplifying filling the data and can also ensure the correct information is populated.

Input supports a number of form types:

  • Drop-down options
  • Slider
  • Date and Time
  • Checkbox
  • Photos
  • Drill-down (or cascade) forms

  • Groups
  • Constraints
  • Conditional visibility of field/group
