Create a collaborative App

The goal of this exercise is to familiarize you with how to create a very simple Input Form. The created App will allow conference participants to locate their workplace, specify their name, gender, and date of registration.


1) Create the Form that will allow you to enter data into the App. Notice the options "editable" and "queryable";

"Description": "Update your identity!",
"attributes": [
"label": "Name/First Name",
"name": "name_first_name",
"type": "text"
"choices": [
"label": "Man",
"value": "M"
"label": "Woman",
"value": "W"
"label": "Gender",
"name": "gender",
"type": "select"
"label": "Date",
"name": "register_date",
"type": "date"
"editable": true,
"fade_when_editing": false,
"name": "Participant",
"queryable": true

2) Create a new"Point" type Data Source named "Participants" by clicking on the "+" button from the main menu, then select "New data source".

3) Add the 3 configured fields, mapped into the previous Form.

  1. name_first_name (text)
  2. gender (text)
  3. register_date (date)

4) Be sure to link the "Participants' Form to your new Data Source;

5) Create a new map with an area of interest on the city of your choice, and add your "Participants" layer.

6) Please classify the layer by men and women with different symbology;

7) Save your map and name it with your username like this: "[your name]_Participants"

8) Click on the "+" button again and select "Web Mapping Application".

  • Name your Web mapping application
  • Select your "[your name]_Participants" map
  • Active the "Feature editing of a single layer" and "Geolocated" option
  • Explore the "Config.JSON" and "Advanced..." sections
  • Save your application

9) Start the application by clicking on the "Run application" button on the far right;

10) Click on the "+" button in the app to add the location of your provenance and enter the information of the Form;

11) Et vouala!
