'Open Data Kit' is an innovative web program designed to offer data collection tools and solutions for different organizations.

The open-source software allows for companies to build a data collection form or survey, collect the data onto a mobile device which is then sent to a server and aggregated. Additionally users can extract this data in formats that are readable and simpler to understand. The data collection tool is currently working towards creating "decision support for clinicians and building multi-media-rich nature mapping tools," proving its potential use in a variety of important fields and industries.

This program allows for knowledge and data to come together in a platform that is accessible and easy to follow.
