GeoPoint Manual Collection

I would like to be able to manually collect a GPS point by simply tapping any point(s) on a map to collect the location coordinates and not use the device GPS. So as an option the user can bypass the device GPS if required.

My enumerators can see from the map where the POI is and can just tap to create the point.

This would be very useful.

Have you tried using the placement-map under the appearance column while designing your xlsform as outlined in the image below (it should solve your issue):


Reference xlsform:

Thanks. didn’t realise this was available. All working now.

Could you tell us the now working context.

  • Enketo or Collect?
  • Android version?
  • Your map setting on the device: Google … or Streetmap?
