LINKS (http://linkssystem.org) is an ODK-based data collection,
reporting, and management system created by the The Task Force for
Global Health. As part of their work, the LINKS team provides their
users with a finalized dataset and a codebook that explains that
dataset. Generating a codebook can be tedious work, so the LINKS team
hired the consultants at Nafundi (http://nafundi.com) to automate the
Nafundi has created LINKS Codebook, a desktop application which takes
an ODK compliant XForm and generates a codebook in PDF (with multiple
languages). Codebook is perfect for users who download ODK datasets
and need to understand what variables correspond with what prompts.
It's free, easy to use, and as you can see at
produces beautiful codebooks.
