QGIS is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS) licensed under the GNU General Public License. QGIS is an official project of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo). It runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, Windows and Android and supports numerous vector, raster, and database formats and functionalities. Its development is volunteer driven.

QField (formerly QGIS Mobile)

Since December 2014 started a new project called QField (formerly QGIS mobile) aimed to create a touch optimized interface for field work based on the QGIS libraries. For more information refer to the dedicated page here.

QGIS for Android

Since September 2011, as a result of Marco’s Google Summer of Code QGIS mobile project, QGIS is available for Android. Marco and Matthias are the maintainers and main developers behind QGIS for Android striving to improve it as much as possible. All work is done on a voluntary base, so if you can, consider supporting us by using the donate button on the right.
Another great way of helping to develop QGIS for Android is sponsoring the development of specific features. For further information please refer to, read the blog posts or contact us.


Having ported QGIS to Android and initiated the QField (formerly QGIS Mobile) project makes the ideal partner for supporting your Android QGIS development or deployment needs. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and discuss your specific needs.
