5 Uses for Crowdsourced Maps (+ Free Templates)

Use Proxi's Form Builder To Crowdsource and Collaborate With Your Team and Community.

From urban planning to sales strategies, accurate and up-to-date maps are essential for decision-making and efficient operations. Proxi is a game-changer, combining mapping with crowdsourcing and custom forms for collaboration and data collection.

Harnessing the Crowd: Collaborative Mapping

One of the most compelling features of Proxi is its support for crowdsourcing. Traditional mapping methods often rely on centralized data collection, which can be time-consuming and costly. Proxi revolutionizes this approach by enabling collaboration directly on the map, enabling a simple but powerful global network of users. Users can add map points and share data in real-time, improving maps with important information from different viewpoints.

Custom Forms: Tailored Data Collection

Proxi's form builder allows users to collect and map data for different purposes. These include field surveys, environmental data collection, and organizing information for local events. The online forms can be customized to meet the specific needs of users within the Proxi platform. These forms can include a variety of data types, such as text fields, dropdown menus, and photo uploads, allowing for comprehensive data collection.

Proxi Forms also supports conditional logic. This tool lets users make forms that change based on how questions are answered, making it easier for respondents to use. With Logic, respondents only see the questions that are pertinent to them. This personalized approach not only enhances the user experience but also boosts completion rates by ensuring a smoother and more engaging interaction - generating more data for your map.

Events & Holiday Celebrations:

Proxi's ability to crowdsource information makes it a perfect partner for festivities and holidays.

Since then, Proxi has developed to enable users to collectively gather a wide range of holiday-related data. With the collective contribution from your informed community, Proxi guarantees a smooth mapping of holiday festivities.
