Viewing observations

To view and manage synchronized observations in Mapeo Desktop, click on Observations in the Mapeo modes panel on the left side of the screen.

Observations mode offers 3 different options for viewing observations in your database. In the Toolbar, you can choose between the following views:

Map view

Media view

To view observations as a gallery of images, click on Media in the Toolbar. Click on an individual image to view the details of that observation in the View observation window.

Report view

To view observations in the form of a report, click on Report in the Toolbar. Report view displays one observation per page and includes the category, coordinates, date, a map of the location, and any images associated with the observation.

Filter observations

To look at a subset of your observations in Map, Media or Report view, use the Filter panel. Observations can be filtered by date, category, and some details fields used to collect the data.

Filter by date

Click ALL to reset the filter and show observations for all dates.

Filter by category

  • Use the checkboxes to select the categories that you want to make visible.

  • Click ONLY to show observations for a single selected category.

  • Click ALL to reset the filter and show observations for all categories.

Filter by details field

You may also have the option to filter by some of the details fields used in your project. Only details that are "select one" fields (ie. you can only select one of the available answer options) will be available in the Filter panel.

For more on creating custom details fields, see Custom configurations.
