With the rapid advance of information communication technologies, unprecedented volumes of environmental and behavioral data have been generated and provided researchers with new pathways to develop strategies and interventions. In digital public health, there has been an emerging interest in promoting vitality based on multidisciplinary research. However, few works have been conducted on facilitating data-related collaboration in vitality research. This paper presents a survey study for the development of a data-driven service system to support multidisciplinary collaboration in vitality-related projects. Our survey received responses from 38 researchers, primarily from Industrial Design and Geoscience. From this survey, we learned both common ground and different research experiences between the two disciplines, regarding the collection, management, and analysis of data. Based on our findings, we proposed a system architecture of a data platform, and specified a set of functions that can assist researchers working from different disciplines in sharing, collection, processing, and analyzing vitality-related research data.
