06-29, 14:30–15:00 (Europe/Tirane), Outdoor Stage

QFieldCloud enables the synchronisation and consolidation of field data collected by teams using QField. From small individual projects to large data collection campaigns, the platform allows you to manage the collaboration of multiple people on the same project, assign different roles and rights to different users, work online and offline, and keep track of changes made. In 2022, QFieldCloud was testable as a beta version. Already during the beta phase, over 40,000 registered users synchronised their projects via the platform. Beginning of 2023, the official version was released. A brief overview of how QFieldCloud works and how the platform is built is given.
