QField is the mobile data collection app for QGIS with more than 100K active monthly users and well over 350K downloads.

Learn how to set up your project, quickly deploy it to your mobile devices and get field data back to your office thanks to QFieldCloud, the hosted service offered by OPENGIS.ch.


In this workshop, we'll go through the complete process of setting up your QGIS project, publish it via QFieldCloud and integrate the field data back to your main dataset in the office.

QField works with QGIS allowing users to set up maps and forms in QGIS on their workstation, and deploy those in the field. Leveraging QGIS' data providers - OGR, GDAL, PostGIS, and more - QField supports most current file formats.

QField combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology that allows intuitive viewing and editing of data. QField’s map display is powered by the QGIS rendering engine, so the results are identical and come with the full range of styling possibilities available on the desktop. Editing forms on QField respect the QGIS configuration and are optimised for touch interaction.

And if you just want quickly to check that dataset that was sent to you, QField will seamlessly open it adding a basemap for your convenience.
