What a years’ start! After a very packed December publishing all the QGIS on the road videos and quietly releasing QField 1.3 – Ben Nevis we could have gone and relaxed over the holidays. But since we love QField so much we immediately started working on the next iteration. Now, after an intensive testing period, we are proud to announce the release of QField 1.4 – Olavtoppen
What a blast it was!
The first QField user day in Bern with around 40 participants from Switzerland and neighbouring countries was packed with use case presentations and interesting discussions.
Terrible news, a killer bee swarm escaped from a laboratory in northern Italy. Maya is desperate, if the killer bee reach her hives, it’s all gone. Maybe the weather could help Maya so she modelling the speed of travel of the killer bees and animates her analysis to see if her bees are likely to survive…
Maya expands up into the mountains. She will show us how she uses spatial bookmarks and live layers to manage her hives without leaving home. Maya also starts a new business: with the help of the QGIS’ print layout manager, QGIS server and the Lizmap Web Client, she gets her infrastructure ready for tourism.
Maya is coming back with a lot of new ideas, demanding more QGIS power. Since she has received plenty of great feedback on honey from hives located at certain spots, she wants to have full overview over the whole area now.
After Maya realizes that many of her beehives have been infected by severe diseases she needs to act quickly to get an overview of the situation. She grabs some friends and tablets and launches QField to map the situation. After assessing the results with advanced configuration of the attribute table she is ready to choose the right measures and do a precise intervention. And of course, this precise intervention is accompanied with a visualization that is on fire.
After analysing the area, Maya now has more hives in the forest. She will locate them using a GPS and import the data through a GPX file. She will then use her advanced knowledge of QGIS symbology capabilities to produce beautiful and meaningful maps.
This summer we went on tour with what turned out to be an extremely popular event: QGIS on the Road Telling the most remarkable story of Maya the beekeeper building her honey business and fighting against seemingly hopeless challenges with the help of QGIS functionality you probably never heard of.
