The mobile application makes it easier for groups to organize the data collection by making use of electronic forms that can be filled out and saved on the phone.

The completed forms can then be uploaded from the phone to our web server by the click of a button! The uploaded data gets scored automatically on the web server and is ready to be viewed on a map when you are. You can also download your data from our website in a spreadsheet.

In addition to the mobile phone application, the PEQI can be implemented by using paper forms and hand calculations. The paper version of the PEQI works well for groups without Android smartphones and those who are not comfortable using computers.To use the paper version visit the COEH website.
