Mobile Data Collection with QGIS

Randy Hale

Over the last 10 years QGIS has become one of the most widely used Open Source GIS Desktops. It can read well over 150 vector and raster formats. It has a wide array of processing tools and ability to create spatial models. It has a growing Server product that allows you to publish projects to the web. One area of QGIS that not many people know about is the ability to collect mobile data. QGIS has two groups that have created mobile applications that are flexible and run on both IOS and Android. In this talk I’ll run through how they work and how you can use them to add some flexibility to your GIS.
