Offline functionality is coming to Coreo!

Dave Kilbey Dec 22 - 2 min read

We’re excited to announce that we will soon be launching full offline functionality within Coreo. 

Coreo was created with one simple goal – to make the collection of accurate location-based data easy. Since its launch 3 years ago, we’ve come to realise that in order to reach this goal there is one key element that our clients need – the ability to work effectively offline. 

Let’s face it, we could build the simplest, quickest and most intuitive software on the planet, but if you’re unable to reliably collect data in locations with no signal, then it’s likely to let you down.

Over the past 8 months we’ve been planning, building and testing our offline functionality to ensure that it is both easy to use and highly functional.

So what exactly does the new version of Coreo add? 

There are 4 main features.  You can now:

  1. Download base mapping directly in the Coreo app.  Simply view the area you want to save in the app, choose your basemap style and download your map. Create as many as you need.
  2. Import your own base maps as GeoTIFFs.
  3. View and work with your records whilst completely offline. All your data are saved locally on the device. Simply sync your changes when back online.
  4. Create custom map layers to visualise your data in new ways, tailored to your project’s requirements.

Together these features transform the way you can collect and work with data in the field. Whether it’s for the reassurance of never worrying about connectivity issues again, or so that you can save your battery by working in airplane mode on long surveys, the new version of Coreo defines a new era in field based data collection.

CEO, Dave Kilbey, comments: “Full offline functionality is something we have been wanting to build into Coreo for some time now. It changes the dynamic for field surveyors and makes Coreo an even more indispensable tool. We’ve built Coreo for and with ecologists and conservation organisations. We are committed to working with these sectors to deliver a product that transforms previously difficult and time consuming tasks into processes that are efficient, accurate and easy.”

Bill Butcher , Director at UKHab and co-creator of the UKHab Survey App states: “The new offline working tools in the UKHab Survey App give the habitat surveyor confidence that data capture is robust from city centres to remote uplands; a really significant step in efficient data capture”.

If you’d like to find out more about the offline functionality, or Coreo in general then please do get in touch.
