D: QField - the mobile allrounder

Correct and up-to-date spatial information in the field is crucial for decision making. The possibility to validate data in the field and correct or acuire existing and new objects in the field guarantees a complete high-quality life-cycle of reliable information.

You have the option to access your data directly online with a reliabe data connection or offline for areas of poor data reception. Thanks to the good integration between QGIS Desktop and QField efficient data collection in the field and synchronisation back into the main database becomes a reality.
