Akvo FLOW is an open-source data collection tool for collecting, evaluating and displaying any quantity of geographically referenced data through its Android application and interactive online dashboard.  It allows users to map situations on the ground and monitor changes over time.   Multiple forms can be added to a survey so users can easily analyze changes to the object of measurement between baseline and monitoring visits.  Thanks to its form translation functionality, survey administrators can conveniently aggregate data collected by enumerators in different languages.  Originally introduced in the water and santiation sector by US NGO Water for People, FLOW is now a powerful monitoring and evaluation tool that can be used across any development sectors.
