Open Data Kit

About Open Data Kit

Open Data Kit (ODK) is a suite of open-source tools designed to empower your information service needs. Built around the XForms standard and such open platforms as Android and AppEngine, the system as a whole is designed to be powerful enough to fulfill any need, yet extensible and flexible enough that individual components of it may be dropped in as necessary.


  • It has now been found that ODK can make pigs fly! Check out the video here for proof. This is an unprecedented breakthrough in data collection technology, and it should really help our data transport layer out. Tune in next week when we make hell freeze over!

  • ODK has been featured as a contender for invention of the year by Time magazine. I hear Joel Stein isn’t too happy about anything that helps those “other” people though.

  • Collect v2.2, also known as Collect Froyo, has now been released. Apparently, it will actually not collect any frozen yogurt for you, so I have no idea what that’s all about.
