What type of response data do we get from a Maptionnaire questionnaire?

The type of response data that you get depends on the types of question elements you have chosen for your questionnaire.

In which format can I download the response data?

Currently, the response data is downloadable as an Excel spreadsheet. The map responses can also be downloaded as shapefiles and geoJSONs.

I've asked the respondents to upload their own files, such as photographs, as responses. How are these featured in Results? Can I download them as a bundle?

When the respondent uploads their own files, we feature them as links in the final results Excel spreadsheet. It is not currently possible to automatically download them in one folder or as a bundle. 

Can I see how many respondents have taken the questionnaire somewhere?

Yes, you can view the number of respondents from either Results or from your team's questionnaires report. For more information on how to read the Results spreadsheet, please take a look at this article. To access your team's questionnaires report, go to Team Settings > Reports tab > Download questionnaires report. The column Respondents shows the number of respondents who have submitted their responses (by clicking the Done! button). For more information on the report CSV files, please refer to this article.


Can I use the data in a GIS programme like QGIS?

Yes, you can. The results data contains the coordinates for each map point that has been placed (WKT), making it easy to simply transfer the Excel data to a GIS software. You can also download the map responses as shapefiles or geoJSONs in the analysis tool.

How long do you retain our data after our license has expired?

We typically retain your team/subgroup with its surveys, pages, materials and results data for 90 days following the end of a license.
