Getting information on a map

Hi everyone! I need to locate multiple places in a survey. The survey question is something like this: “what are the most important environmental hotpots in your neighborhood?” (hint: mark up to 7 in the map) . I would need to provide the neighborhood’s map in the online survey and the respondents should be able to select up to 7points in a map, not only one

A map of the neighborhood is available in google maps, i.e I could include the link

Does someone know how to do that?
Thanks in advance!

Hi @crobledo,

Welcome to the community! You could do this by following the instructions outlined below:

Step 1: In the survey tab of the xlsform (Design your survey tab as outlined in the image below:)

Step 2: In the choices tab of the xlsform (Design your choices tab as outlined in the image below:)

Note: For this, you will need SVG image of the map you wish to work with. Once you have SVG image, Right click the SVG image > Select, Open with > Select, Notepad. You should see something as shown in the image below:

So while designing the choices tab, consider the text in id (i.e. NP-BA) as the text that should be written under the name column and consider the text in title (i.e. Bagmati) as the text that should be written under the label column (refering from the SVG image).

Step 3: Upload the xlsform

Step 4: Deploy the survey project

Step 5: Upload the SVG image (As outlined in the image below:)

You should now be able to view the map and select it’s location.

Note: This feature at the moment only works while collecting data with Enketo.

Reference xlsform:
zone.xlsx (10.1 KB)

Reference SVG image:
Sorry could not share the SVG image as i was unable to upload the same. But you could visit the site from where i downloaded the map. It’s here.

Have a great day!
