Just a quick screenshot to show that qgis on android is now a working reality. Tomorrow I’ll make a video and so on. The major missing thing now is reading shp files ad maybe spatialite… maybe tomorrow. Now it’s sunday 😉

test it now:

Grea! Have you seen my comment about the qt bug?

I am getting an error: “There is a problem parsing the package”.
Do I need to have my phone rooted and the SDK installed to load the QGIS package?

    hi, normally you need neither. when do you get the error?

Elijah Meeks · 2011-08-22 at 21:12

Is connecting to a PostGIS database and loading a layer going to be a possibility? Because that would prove incredibly useful for what I’m working on.

marco · 2011-08-22 at 21:24

well, in principle yes, it just depends which lib the postgis connector needs. right now I’m working on spatialite and it look almost there.

Hi, I’m Brazilian and apologize for the bad English. I have a Lg Optimus One Android 2.2, and. Apk is not recognized. The appliance must be root? Thanks

    Hi, no no rooting needed, but android 2.3. ciao Marco

Ander · 2011-08-24 at 00:12

Ok, thanks!

Hi Marco, works fine on my Asus tranformer. I could not move to my SD card with GIS data, but that is just a question of fiddling around a bit.
Thank you for this excellent work heling the Open source GIS community.
