QGIS Mobile is dead...long live 'QField'

QGIS has become one of the most successful Open Source GIS projects on the planet. From it's early beginnings as not much more than a Shapefile viewer to an ArcGIS alternative coupled with Grass GIS Modules there is very little general spatial functionality missing... well almost.

QGIS was never meant to be a convenient field data entry tool and QGIS for mobile was meant to fill the gap however as of December 2014 the project has been refocused to create a touch optimised interface aimed at field work using the QGIS libraries.

'QField' aims to take your pre-prepared QGIS project out into the field and maintain QGIS styling. Some of the promised tools include:-
  • More GPS centric editing.
  • Desktop compatibility.
  • Synchronisation.
  • Project preparation on QGIS Desktop.
  • Simple interface with just a couple of buttons.
  • Switchable use paradigm
Built from Qt5, QtQuick 2 and OpenGL.
