We are conducting an inventory of
larger-scale mobile data collection efforts currently underway.
Many of you
are running an/or are aware of projects that utilize mobile tech (namely Frontline SMS) in the process of collecting data. This could be any form of data - health, environmental, agricultural, etc. We are looking for examples and projects to better understand the landscape.
We are interested specifically in these questions re. your project or any that you are aware of:
1. Who is running the project (contact info would be great!)
2. Where? (country/region)
is the type/content of data collected?
4. What is the scope/size of the project? (# of people targeted, #of
data points, #of SMS, etc - as appropriate for each project)
can input details about your project directly here: http://bit.ly/mdinventory
or email me at Anoush@mobileactive.org.
We are looking at a short turnaround, so please respond to us at the
earliest convenience! If there are other people we should contact instead for information that you'd suggest, do let us know who they are! Thank you so much.
We will be making this landscape scan publicly available, in an
effort to help inform eachothers' work!
