Megin Maps - Bad Elf Compatible
Would your organization benefit from an open-source mobile data collection platform? The Mergin Maps app is one of the easiest ways to transfer your QGIS projects into the hands of your field technicians for field notation, asset locates, and more. Pair the Mergin Maps app with a Bad Elf GNSS unit and your team can accurately record, sync, and edit your geospatial data in real-time without information loss due to asynchronous or failed edits.
The app is a secure cloud-based GIS tool, which means that all data collected using this tool is stored in the cloud. This makes it very easy to access data from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. This is a significant improvement over traditional pen and paper surveys, where data collection and management can be time-consuming, difficult to share, and prone to errors.
Mergin Maps also operates as an offline mobile data collection platform, which means that your team can collect data in remote areas where internet connectivity may be limited or non-existent. The Bad Elf Flex also offers top-tier performance without the luxury of an internet connection with several offline correction options depending on your requirements. Your team can efficiently collect, manage, and analyze data in the highly configurable QGIS environment, reducing the need for manual data entry and increasing the productivity of the survey by customizing the app for your needs.
