Edit an observation

Share data externally

Delete an observation

Deleting observations cannot be undone, so exercise caution when using delete.

Synchronize data

Mapeo Mobile allows you to synchronize data with other Mapeo users that are participants of the same project. During synchronization, ALL data from one device will be sent to the other device and vice versa. For more on synchronization, see: Peer-to-peer & Mapeo sync.

To synchronize data between 2 Mapeo Mobile devices that are near each other:

  1. Connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network. (You do not need to have an internet connection.)

  2. On the Synchronize screen, identify the device you wish to synchronize with in the list and tap the Sync button beside its name.

  3. Keep the Synchronize screen open on both devices until the synchronization has completed.
