On good form

I wanted to briefly mention a great new resource for anyone involved in online data collection, brought to us by international data quality and addressing guru, Graham Rhind. “Better data quality from your web form” is a free download ebook in pdf format that is designed to help achieve effective international name and address Internet data collection. In the spirit of full disclosure I should mention that Graham asked me to take a look at the book before he published it and as such I can say it’s an invaluable source of information.

Exhibiting Graham’s customary thorough and comprehensive coverage of the topic, the book includes guidance on name and address capture, use of pick-lists and other form elements, usability and data validation. Longe-standing readers of my blog will know that web forms are something of a hot topic for me and I hope this book will help curb some of the worst examples of bad practice out there!

The book is available for download from Graham’s site, and whilst you’re there you should take a look at the wealth of additional information he makes available.
