OmniTrack for Research: a Flexible In-Situ Data Collection Platform for Researchers
OmniTrack for Research (O4R) is a research platform for mobile-based in situ data collection—such as diary studies, EMA, background sensing, or any combination of them; In situ data collection is a powerful means to understand human behaviors, experiences, and their environments. To implement in situ data collection studies, researchers either have to rely on existing platforms or build custom tools. With O4R, researchers can rapidly build up a wide range of data collection studies without any coding. Using a web-based interface, researchers can translate their study design into an Android app, deploy the app to study participants, and monitor the data collection remotely.
OmniTrack for Research is fully-open sourced and available for any researchers.
