Latest Activities for Mobile Data Collection

Setting up the tools (for data collection and analysis) for health center and school evaluation for Tdh
Sep / 2016

CartONG developed a large part of the mobile and analysis components of FACET, a facility monitoring tool for Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services in schools (WINS) and in health facilities (WIH).

The tools are based on Kobo/ODK for mobile data collection and  on a Power BI dashboard for online visualisation of indicators and an Excel offline dashboard for more advanced analysis. 

The WASH in Health Facility Evaluation Tool (FACET), jointly developed by Terre des hommes, Eawag and CartONG with support from the UNICEF/WHO Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP), is based on globally recognised indicators and is suitable across the continuum of humanitarian and development interventions.

In 2017, CartONG also designed an online dashboard with Power BI linked to the FACET WASH Health Facility (see an example with test data) and School evaluation mobile data collection tools (here).
