What is EQuIS Collect?

EQuIS Collect is EarthSoft’s supported field module in EQuIS workflow and integrates with multiple other EQuIS applications. EQuIS Collect Enterprise dashboards help manage projects and field crews, build and publish Collect Form Templates, and review sampling-activity analytics. Collect Forms are populated with field data in the Collect Mobile app and uploaded to EQuIS with the Enterprise EQuIS Data Processor (EDP), enforcing data rules and ensuring data integrity.

EarthSoft maintains an extensive library of Collect Templates based on numerous EQuIS Formats. Collect Templates can be customized for any new field activity and Help files can be added to any Template. Published Collect Forms are immediately and securely available to selected field groups on Collect Mobile. Collect Enterprise dashboards track field activities in real-time, helping managers to respond to unplanned activities.

EQuIS workflows generate more accurate data and are more scalable and sustainable than other methods; EarthSoft has experience with large-scale data collection programs. Using EQuIS Collect reduces time entering data, improves accuracy, and saves money.

Select or Create Data Collection Forms

​A variety of Collect Templates are available from EarthSoft or can be customized. Form templates are designed and built on Collect Enterprise then published to the Collect Mobile apps. Templates are a collection of Forms providing the structure and rules for data entry on the Forms. Forms contains fields with various attributes, data mapping to an EQuIS format, and necessary formulas. Forms can be pre-populated from EQuIS (e.g., locations to be sampled). Data entered on forms must adhere to all rules and logic set in the template increasing data integrity.

Collect Data in the Field More Accurately

Open Forms on Collect Mobile, enter data or capture data from loggers, and attach images or other files. Field crews can manage forms and track progress with GIS. Create an electronic Chain of Custody (eCOC) in the field.  Historical water levels, activities, equipment, inspections, sampling, and COC handling can also be pre-populated.

Upload Data V1

Check and Upload Data to EQuIS

​Collect Forms populated with data (EDDs) use EDP to enforce correctness and custom rules prior to upload to EQuIS. Collect Mobile and Enterprise users can view Form Upload status (Received, Accepted, Rejected, Completed). If the EDD has errors, an Error Status is displayed and an Error Log is generated. Multiple field staff can use the same Forms during field events, and the data synchronized with EQuIS.

Review Data Collection Analytics

EQuIS Collect Enterprise and other EQuIS products like EnviroInsite and ArcEQuIS can analyze, report, and visualize field data. The Collect Enterprise dashboard provides several data collection metrics. Sampling Completeness Reports and Summary Reports for each Form are available.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of data can EQuIS Collect capture?

EQuIS Collect can be used to capture any type of data, such as water, soil, air, odor, geotechnical, and more. EQuIS formats can be applied to Collect forms to correctly map data to EQuIS Schemas. Connect to public API data sources, capture geospatial data from GPS devices or maps, and use Sketch Pad to draw on images. Signature fields can be added to Collect forms.

Can EQuIS Collect be used offline?

Yes. Data can be collected with the Collect Mobile app even if an internet connection is not available. However, data cannot be upload to EQuIS without internet connectivity.

Can EQuIS Collect connect to my data loggers to download data?

Yes. The Collect Mobile app can directly capture data real time from supported data loggers.

How is EQuIS Collect licensed?

Annual subscription. Volume discounts are available. Contact sales@earthsoft.com for more information.

How does EQuIS Collect enforce data integrity in the field?

EQuIS Collect enforces data integrity in two ways. First, data forms can have formulas assigned to fields to calculate or check values, provide set lists of values, etc. Collect has more than 80 functions that can be used to build formulas.

Second, forms are built on an EQuIS format file that contains the definitions and restrictions for each individual field in available EQuIS data tables. The format files control data checks, such as range checking, reference values, formatting, and enumerations. Forms populated with field data are pushed to the EQuIS Data Processor (EDP) to check data for correctness and per client-specific rules prior to upload to the EQuIS database.

Which format files can I use with EQuIS Collect?

Collect can use any format that works in EDP. This includes all standard, non-standard (separate EQuIS modules and client formats), and custom formats.

Can I generate a Chain of Custody in EQuIS Collect?

Yes. The Collect – COC Report returns Chain of Custody (COC) data exports based on data from Collect forms. The report can be run from EQuIS Professional, EQuIS Enterprise, or the EQuIS Collect mobile app (if the device is connected to the Internet). The report template can be customized to add logos, hide or show columns, and much more.

Can I use a bar code scanner with EQuIS Collect?

Yes. Barcode scanners are supported in two ways, with either the built-in camera or attaching a scanner to your device.

Can I query an EQuIS database from within EQuIS Collect?

EQuIS user reports that have been published on the Enterprise server can be assigned to a form and be available on the Collect Mobile app. Direct query of reports can be available on forms through API calls.

How do we make sure that no data is lost from a mobile device (i.e., how are backups handled)?

Any data pushed to EQuIS during field collection creates a backup of the data on the server, even if the data package was not committed to the database. In addition, Collect Mobile has a backup feature to create a zip package that contains all Collect data on the device. The file can be saved to an external storage card or internal storage, transferred through Bluetooth/Wi-Fi to another device, emailed, or uploaded to cloud storage. Saving to external/internal device storage and device transfers can be done offline.
