Remote mobile data collection is an efficient and cost effective solution to the data gathering needs of organizations. This is especially true in rural areas where systems need to be robust and able to cope with various challenges. EMIT is an open-source web application created by Cell-Life for the purpose of collecting data remotely from mobile clients in the field. The aim of this project is to extend the features of EMIT implement the solution at Transcape in the Eastern Cape. The application will need to be able to handle the upload and display of rich media.
