Developing FDA Field Investigator’s Tool with Mapping Prototype
Track: Mobile and Device Apps
Authors: Kathleen Cheeseman, Socrates Trujillo
FDA is developing a Field Investigator’s Tool with Mapping (FIT-MAP). FIT-MAP is a mobile GIS application and rational questionnaire to collect data during domestic investigations and create real-time maps. FIT-MAP will replace paper data collection. The benefits of using FIT-MAP include standardized digital data collection, reduced investigation costs and time, and enhanced ability to analyze data. This project is a useful case study for others looking to automate rational questionnaires.
