The geospatial application

Our application is called qConut. We are in the testing phase of the application development. The product is open source and once testing is complete a link will be provided to access the application and its code.

qConut is a field to cloud geospatial application for landscape management.

Current functionality has developed and trialled tools using QField:

  • Mapping fields and farm management
  • Field-based forest monitoring
  • Incorporating down-scaled climate projections with farm information to assess field-level climate change vulnerability
  • Capture of kitchen garden management and socio-economic information for seedling distribution prioritisation amongst households

We are also using PostGIS for database and server development, RShiny as an interface for data query, visualisation and download, and embedding ancillary data on forestry, land use and climate. Future functionality will allow for repeat monitoring of landscapes at scale.
