Ground is an open-source, map-first data collection and analysis platform built to seamlessly connect the offline world with cloud-based storage and computation. The platform consists of a web app for data management and an Android app for offline data collection. Our goal is to provide a “just right” data collection solution that meets the needs of community organizers, conservationists, humanitarian workers, and researchers addressing some of today’s most pressing issues.

Note: Ground is not an officially supported Google product, and is developed on a best-effort basis.
