QGIS is efficient and comfortable in everyday office life. However, data collection often begins on the field. Whether in shiver or sunshine, working outdoors requires a solution that is optimized for mobile devices. QField [1] is the perfect companion of QGIS. The off-the-shelf application allows intuitive viewing and editing of data. With a slick user interface, QField allows using QGIS projects on tablets. 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 adapted for touch interaction. . For situations where network access is unavailable, a QGIS plugin downloads all the data to the device and allows integrating the changes back when returning to the office. Features such as satellite positioning or camera integration make QField a powerful tool for those who need to edit on the go and would like to avoid standing in the swamp with a laptop or paper charts. For cases where an off-the-shelf solution is not enough, the core components of QField have been extracted into a new framework called QgisQuick. While QField covers the majority of use cases as an off-the-shelf solution, this framework can be used for custom development to meet specific customer requirements and workflows. QField, like QGIS, is an open source project [2]. Everyone is welcome to contribute to make the product even better - whether it is with financial support, enthusiastic programming or visionary ideas.
