Collecting Location Information

Collecting Location Information
Once location aware has been activated for a dataset, the location aware indicator will appear in the top right hand corner of the main screen. 
DataWorks will automatically manage your locations for you. When you record a datapoint, if you are not at an existing location, the co-ordinates of the new location will be automatically added to the datapoint for you. If you are at an existing location, that location's details will be added to the datapoint.


You can determine if you are at a location by looking at the location icon. If the location icon is blue, then you are at an existing location. If the location icon is grey, you are not at an existing location and a new location will be created automatically if you record data.  

Tapping on the location aware indicator will take you to the map screen.
