Introducing the GeoLocation Field – Capture Location data using Web Forms

We recently introduced a new Geolocation Field  which lets you capture location data of the user filling out the form.  It also lets you view the submission data on a Map.

Geolocation has several use cases and is perfect for organizations who have an on-field team doing surveys or data collection.

How does it work?

Well it is really simple to create Location Enabled Forms. Simply add the Geolocation field to your form to make it location aware.

Geolocation Accuracy

Since we use HTML5 Geolocation technology, the accuracy of the data is dependent on factors like Device, Connection and Browser.  The accuracy is best on GPS enables mobile devices like SmartPhones and Tablets.
