With this feature, it's possible to export the whole project as the QGIS 3.x project. It helps to use the data on a PC in powerful and free GIS SW. The main benefit is the usage of attachments created in the field in the office on the PC.

Open project in QGIS

Firstly, it is needed to copy the whole exported folder to the PC. You can copy data via USB or use the mentioned cloud services for sharing data between the device and the PC. The export folder contains :

  • file project.db - an internal Locus GIS SQLite DB database that contains the data
  • file project.qgs - QGIS project file (open this file on the PC to load the project in QGIS)
  • folder attachments - contains your images, records that are used as attachments in the project

All these files and folders have to be copied to the PC. Finally, open the *.qgs file to launch the project in QGIS.

Display attachment in QGIS

  • Open QGIS project
  • Open Actions menu and select "Attachments"
  • Click on any feature (geometry) with attachment to display the attachments
