QGIS Data Versioning with Kart
06-28, 15:05–15:10 (Europe/Tirane), UBT C / N110 - Second Floor

Maybe you've heard of Kart, the great new geodata versioning tool from the team at Koordinates? But did you know that Kart also has a QGIS plugin so you can do real data versioning without needing to leave QGIS?

In just 5 minutes we'll demonstrate how to import data into a new Kart repository, make and review some changes, merge a branch, and push everything to a remote server. All from QGIS!

We’re drowning in data, but the geospatial world lags badly behind in versioning tools compared to our software counterparts. Kart ( is solving this with a practical open tool for versioning datasets, enabling you to work more efficiently and collaborate better.

Kart allows you to quickly and easily manage history, branches, data schemas, and synchronisation for large & small datasets between different working copy formats, operating systems, and software ecosystems.

Modern version control unlocks efficient collaboration, both within teams and across organisations meaning everyone stays on the same page, you can review and trace changes easily: ultimately using your time more efficiently.

Robert is the head of technology of Koordinates and has been involved in geospatial for nearly twenty years. As well as Kart, he is also a contributor to GDAL and several other open source projects.
