I’m really happy to announce that today we have finally added a feature that will allow to export your data into a CSV format with just one click (we also support the same for JSON).
For this purpose, all the applications in PyBossa now feature a new URI:
Where you will find several options to export the tasks or task runs (the answers) to different formats. In the case of the CSV format, you will get a CSV file that could be downloaded to your computer to load it later in any spreadsheet software :-)
NOTE: bear in mind that CSV is a flat format, so nested JSON objects will be “dumped” as they are, so for example if you are using GeoJSON for storing some location, you will get in the CSV file the JSON object as a string. You can see an example of this issue in the Urban Parks application, as this demo application uses the GeoJSON format for storing the location of the parks.
If you prefer JSON, just click in any of the buttons and save the generated file!
If you want to try the new feature, just go ahead and check it in CrowdCrafting.org
