Quick guide: How to access and analyze response data

Download response data as an Excel file
  1. Go to Results.

  2. You have two options: download all responses to all published versions of the survey or responses to a selected version of the survey. (Remember to hide any test data before the download.)  Click the blue button that says Download responses as Excel sheet (.xlsx).

    The Excel contains responses to all questions, including coordinate data for map responses. For more on how to read the Excel, see this article. To use the coordinate data to take your survey to a GIS software, see this article.


You can also watch a short video clip on this:


Go to Analyze > Response graphs. There you can view, edit and download automatically generated graphs of response data. The graphs are organized by survey page. Click the arrow on the left bottom corner to browse them.


Responses to questions in pop-ups linked to map questions can also be found here. To view a larger version of a graph or to edit it, click the 'open' symbol on the upper right corner of each graph. You can also download an image file (PNG) of the graph.


Map responses

Go to Analyze > Map responses. This section is for analyzing responses to mapping questions, i.e. the geographic data. This is also where you can analyze responses to interactive image questions.

  1. Add the map layers (map/interactive image questions) that you want to examine from the drop-down menu. Please note that the layers will be categorized by the question drawbutton title. You can rename them in this tool after adding them.


    In this example (below), the responses to one map question have been added, meaning that there is one analysis layer presented on the map.


  2. Visualize the data:

      • Change background map: Open the map menu from the upper right corner of the screen and choose another map. If you want to add new maps, add them to your survey.
      • Change the color, size, fill and opacity of map pins/lines/areas: Go to Visualize. Click the cog symbol next to Source layer.
      • Heatmap: Go to Visualize. Click the cog symbol next to Heat map. You can adjust the blur and radius of the heat map.


  3. Filter map data. You can filter map responses shown depending on any other question in your survey. For example, if you want to compare how people of different ages responded, you could filter the responses based on their age. See this article for more tips and tricks on how to analyze your data using different filters.


    For example, in the example below, we have filtered only the responses in which the word 'beautiful' is contained in the pop-up question.


  4. Examine different filtered or unfiltered answers on the map in the Explore tab.


  5. Export maps as images (PNG) or as map files (shapefile/geoJSON)

  • Hello Hans,

    You can access results for interactive image from Analyze page. Select the question you want the results from as ‘Analysis layer’ and the interactive image as ‘Basemap’. Now you should see the responses over the interactive image.

    Best regards,

  • Greetings,

    Is there a tutorial page on how to visualize and review comments submitted on Interactive Images?
