The pointSurvey mapping tool integrates geographic information into digital surveys
The app that automatically registers routes
The mapping tool pointSurvey has been developed in collaboration with Alingsås municipality and the Swedish Transport Administration to, for example, map school children's safety in traffic.
The pointSurvey mapping tool integrates geographic information into digital surveys. The respondent downloads pointsurvey’s app, selects when the route is to be started and then the route is registered automatically. The respondent can upload photos along the way, mark out places and comment directly in the pointsurvey app. Nowadays, pointSurvey is used in many areas, for example to get the disabled’s view of accessibility in the public space, citizens’ view of security in their immediate environment and to map safety in the workplace. pointSurvey is a complete tool for creating digital surveys with built-in geographical information such as roads, buildings and places. It is easy to participate in the survey, which has a smart and pedagogical approach. A walking path or a route is automatically marked when the respondent walks, bikes, rides a car or bus, easily via pointsurvey’s app. Problematic places or areas are indicated by icons and the respondent can leave free comments or comment via options in a scroll bar. The answers are handled with respect for the respondent’s integrity and in line with the GDPR.

Completed route reports
