Yes, we passed our Math exams in elementary school, don’t worry. It is just us trying to be witty about our new special offer. For every 2 MDC licenses you buy, you get 1 license for free. It is simple as that!

In other words:

  • you buy 2 MDC licenses for let’s say 2 months, you get one MDC license for these 2 months for free
  • volume and period (6 months and annual) discounts still apply!

Solution:
Map Editor + Mobile Data Collection

  1. Upload your existing data to the Map Editor app.
    Side note: Be sure to add your data from your database
  2. Create a custom form in Forms Manager using a ‘create from layer’ option and save it.
    Side note: double check your data is added from the database because repetitio est mater studiorum (repetition is mother of learning)
  3. Access your form through Mobile Data Collection app under Maps & Layers Tab and:

    • Choose the map in which you have imported your data
    • Choose the layer based on which you created your form on

    Side note: Projects tab refers to Mobile Data Portal application

  4. Option A is to update your data by simply populating the form you created with the newly collected data
    Side note: Do it even in an offline mode
  5. Option B is to review your data directly in the app:

    • Click on the Map tab in your Settings
    • Once you are in the map click on the location you want to review and click on the edit button
    • Click on the accept edit button once you are done with the review

    Side note: You can add layers and change base maps in Map Editor app, and changes will be seen in your MDC mobile app

  6. Check out your work in Map Editor where all the changes you did (update and review) have been recorded in real time.
    Side note: Do it with multiple users simultaneously from different locations (different cities, countries, continents – sky’s the limit…literally – not available in the Universe…yet).
