Field data collection

Toloka helps you digitize the offline world.

Why your business needs to collect field data

Online data doesn'st always tell the whole story for your business. Capturing field data on site can fill in the gaps. 
Collect field data for market intelligence at brick-and-mortar stores, geo services, outdoor advertising, public services, and any applications that need on-site data. With Toloka's global crowd, you can gather information in real time from anywhere in the world.

Digitize the offline world

We can build a streamlined data collection 
process for your business.


  • Not all the information your business needs is available online — some data needs to be captured in person. Field data refers to any type of information gathered on site at a point of interest.
  • When you need to collect offline data on site, it's usually cost-prohibitive to send a field team to every location. People who live near the site can take part in mobile data collection with an app on their handheld device and upload the data to you immediately. That's the power of the crowd.
  • You can create a dataset with the field data you collected, then ask the crowd to verify or label the data on the Toloka data labeling platform.
  • When Tolokers look for field tasks in the app, they choose the ones that are nearby on the map so they can easily walk to the destination or stop by on their way somewhere else. With Tolokers in over 100 countries, many locations are covered by our crowd. If you are interested in a particular city, just ask.
