How it works: QGIS is open source Geographic Information System (GIS) software freely available on Windows, OS X, and Linux, and is globally the second most popular desktop GIS platform. GIS Cloud is proprietary cloud software which provides online mapping, hosting solutions and tools for mobile data collection. Within a QGIS project the user will have the ability to select any spatial data layer and upload this directly into their GIS Cloud account. The tool will upload one or more GIS Cloud compatible layers into a named folder in the user’s online file manager. The user will also have an option of creating a new GIS Cloud map project and adding these newly uploaded layers.
Arguably, a well-rounded GIS solution utilises both desktop and cloud technologies. It is therefore necessary to provide linkages between desktop and cloud systems, in order to build robust work flows which take advantage of all available technologies. This new tool will save time and expose data to the range of services offered by GIS Cloud.
In 2015 Spatial Vision took on the role of a product reseller and support provider for the suite of GIS Cloud products in Australia and New Zealand. This product fulfils an existing gap in the integration between QGIS and GIS Cloud which significantly benefits the user community of both products.
