    How can I convert this standard SQLite3 Database to an alternative file for ingest into QGIS?

      Hi Scott, MapIt database is not kind of spatial database, so it will not be easy.
      Tables containing the spatial information are:
      – Layers, Features, Points
      These tables are related to each other and you could so some kind of query to retrieve the data but I am not able to give you any advice on that.
      The attributes of each feature are stored as JSON strings in Features table.

      if you need to pass the data from MapIt to qGIS the best way is just to export the layer as geoJSON and use free on-line tool called OGRE to convert your data to SHP file.
      SHP file can be than opened in qGIS and the table will contain all attributes in separate fields.

    Hi Osedok, how can I transfer the entire app Mapit Pro with all the data that I collected during the past few years to a new mobile phone? Because my old one is not functioning well anymore and I had to replace it. However, I lost the Sim card of my old phone but the entire Mapit Pro including all the data is still functioning on the old phone. Thanks a lot for your help!

    • osedok says:

      Hi Jan, just backup your Mapit folder from the old phone and move it to your new device – same location (root of the storage).
      Using backup management create new backup file on the old phone and follow the steps from this article to get that file restored on the new device.
