QField focuses on efficiently getting GIS fieldwork done and exchanging data between the field and the office in a comfortable and user friendly way.
Built on top of the popular QGIS open source project, QField lets users consume fully configured projects in the field allowing for customized feature forms, map themes, print layouts, and more, bringing the power of QGIS at your fingertips.
Leveraging open source libraries such as gdal, sqlite and PostGIS, QField reads, displays and allows editing of a wide variety of spatial vector and raster datasets. Users are able to view and modify datasets wherever they are whether they have been downloaded onto your device, shared in emails or transferred via USB cable.
The supported formats include:
- QGIS project files (.qgs, .qgz, as well as geopackage-embedded projects);
- sqlite-based geopackage and spatialite databases;
- GeoJSON,KML, GPX, and shapefile vector datasets;
- GeoTIFF, GeoPDF, WEBP, and JPEG2000 raster datasets.

QField can make use of location permission to draw a marker overlaying device location on top of spatial projects and datasets. QField can also display and make use of location details such as latitude, longitude, elevation, and accuracy while entering data.
