User guide: Android mobile tool for field data collection

The Global Earthquake Model (GEM) aims to provide a set of tools and models for hazard and risk analysis.  The fundamental aim of the GEM Inventory Data Capture Tools (IDCT) risk global component is to provide a set of software and accompanying user protocols to enable users to collect and modify building exposure information, which can be input into the Global Exposure Database and the Global Earthquake Consequences Database.  

This report forms the user guide for IDCT Android Inventory Data Mobile Tool, which is available from Google Play.  It details the usage of the mobile tool for setting up data capture, utilising the map interface, marking survey points, capture of building attributes, export of survey data and import of offline map data.
