These tutorials instruct on tools for collecting spatial data for mapping and monitoring diverse landscapes using mobile GIS, desktop GIS, and cloud-based geospatial computing.

The tutorials were developed through the Livelihoods and Landscapes project which is using these tools for monitoring agricultural landscapes in Fiji and Tonga.

Mobile GIS data collection

There are three introductory lessons that outline the steps required to setup a QField data collection project followed by tutorials demonstrating how QField has been used by landscape stakeholders in Fiji and Tonga.

Lesson 1

  1. QGIS and QField setup
  2. Project creation and form generation

Lesson 2

  1. Opening projects in QField
  2. Data collection using QField
  3. Syncing data from mobile devices

Lesson 3

  1. Generating complex data collection forms
