1. Introduction

In this tutorial we're going to use Mergin Maps to create a field data collection app. With Mergin Maps you can setup a field mapping project in QGIS, synchronize the project with the cloud and with your mobile phone. The Mergin Maps app is available on Android, iOS and Windows.

You can use the app with online and offline maps in the field. It also allows you to collaborate in field survey projects and takes care of the version management.

After data collection, you can synchronize the project in QGIS and use the data for further processing.

This tutorial will guide you through the steps for creating a field data collection app for crop mapping.
