The gvSIG Desktop plugin to create forms for field data gathering with gvSIG Mobile in an easy way is now available.
Through this plugin we can create custom forms for censuses, surveys, inventories, inspections …, with the different type of fields that we want (drop-down, multi-selection, date, true-false …).
The main advantage of working with these forms is that we can create different sections, which cover different topics, and each of them with their customized forms.
We can also send the file containing these forms to the different teams that do the field work so that everyone works with the same types of data.
In order to use this new extension it is necessary to install it previously in gvSIG Desktop, and if we want to import the field data in gvSIG Desktop then we must also install the extension that allows us to do it.
In the following video we can see how to install both extensions, how to create the forms, how to take the field data with them and how to load this data in gvSIG Desktop later for analyze them:

Hi Brian, doesn’t the plugin appear when you select “Mobile” option at the left side at the add-ons manager? What gvSIG version are you using? It’s available for gvSIG 2.5 and 2.5. In case that it doesn’t appear you can send the problem to the mailing list. Here you can see how to do it: https://blog.gvsig.org/2015/06/17/what-to-do-when-we-get-an-error-in-gvsig/
