Bricolab, Instit Agro Montpellier

The AgroTIC team offers several short one-day training courses in surveying and mapping. Find out more about these courses.

The aim of this training course is to learn how to organize field data collection using the free tools QGIS and Mergin Maps.

Acquiring spatial data is necessary to understand phenomena on the scale of a plot, a group of plots or a territory. This is particularly the case for disease monitoring, monitoring practices, etc. However, acquiring and managing such data can be complicated when carried out over a long period of time or by several operators. How can we ensure that data is not collected redundantly, in the right place or with omissions? In this training course, we'll show you how to acquire spatial data simply and efficiently. You'll learn how to set up a tried-and-tested acquisition chain based on the use of a smartphone and QGIS. You'll leave with all the best practices for the acquisition and data management phases.
