Ideas for planning

Do you have a plan on establishing a new residential area, improving sites for recreation or developing public traffic? With Harava map surveys you can easily receive an insight on what actions the locals really see as important. With Harava you can engage the most important stakeholders: people for whom a better environment is built for!

Inventories

Harava is a useful tool also in inventories concerning culture and nature environment. Through crowdsourcing you can get a wider perspective on your research area. The most valuable data on history and characteristics of a certain area is in the minds and memories of local people.

Commenting plans

A new residential area under construction? Planning a new public bus route? Place your plan in Harava, involve the local people and ask them for comments!

Collecting feedback

With Harava you can easily implement customer feedback surveys and long-term collection of feedback related to for example infrastructure maintenance or traffic safety. 

Recipe for a successful map survey

Set clear objectives! 

Make sure that your goals for survey implementation and results are clear. Try not to make the survey too long — a logical and compact survey will ensure you with more answers.

Create a new survey 

Carry out your survey with or without a map — which ever suits your needs the best! Make sure that the survey front page is informative — doing this ensures a pleasant and easy answering process.

Choose background maps 

Use your own background maps in the survey — or use our ready-made, high-quality background maps. You can also upload other relevant GIS datasets to be presented in the survey.

Add content and customize the layout 

Enrich your survey with questions, text, images and other content types! You can create your own survey quickly with drag-and-drop elements and ready-made templates. Modify the survey to match the brand and colours of your organisation.

Publish and communicate! 

You need efficient communication and marketing in order to reach the relevant audience for your survey. Make use of local media, Facebook ads, Twitter…there is no way you can promote your survey too much!

Report the results! 

Make a report on the survey answers, communicate them to your stakeholders and be open on how the data will be used. This way you will make the respondents feel that their input is important and you will more likely get active respondents also the next time.
