The WVS data collection app

The WVS data collection app was developed in response to challenges encountered during large scale canine vaccination campaigns - it has now evolved into so much more.

App uses

The app is already being used for:

  • Surgical records
  • Animal population surveys
  • Research projects
  • Community surveys
  • Rabies surveillance
  • Mass dog vaccination
  • Hospital bite case management

Perfect for remote field work

The app was designed to overcome the challenge of field work, its simple interface and ability to work without 3G makes it suitable for many different types of field data collection.


The mapping function of the app allows detailed maps to be uploaded in .csv, .kml or shapefile form. Teams can be individually assigned regions ensuring areas are covered systematically and efficiently.

GPS data is collected with every data entry allowing geospatial analysis of field work.


Teams can navigate across an area, switching between Google Maps and Google Satellite in the app. The path tracker function eases navigation for data collectors, ensuring that no area is repeated or missed. For shelters and surgical teams, this function ensures every animal collected is released in the same location.

One health

Integrated bite case management (IBCM)

The app creates a platform through which health sectors can share knowledge crucial to the identifcation of rabid animals and coordinate a response to protect the community.

Tracing potential rabid dogs and additional human rabies exposures through the treatment-seeking behaviorrs of a community make the IBCM tool a potent resource for rabies elimination.
