    When taking photos with MapitGIS, how can the photos data be exported/linked with the points when importing into QGIS?

    • osedok says:

      Hi Lynne, all points are saved in SDCard->MapIt->Pictures->Your Layer Name->Feature ID, you need to copy them over manually to your PC and then link somehow from qGIS, however I am not qGIS expert and cannot comment on this.

        Thanks! Is there anyway to get the photo’s file name (ie “xxxx.jpg”) into the export file in an attribute field? I’ve figured out how to manually tag a photo to each point on QGIS but it would be much less tedious if the file name data was already attached to the point.

        • osedok says:

          Yes, it should be possible however I need to think about it as some people are having more than one picture attached to the point. I am afraid it will be also difficult to get it implemented in April and it can be only looked at some point in May.

    Is there a way of exporting points and pictures taken in those points all together in a kml file?

    Hi, very good app!! I am really enjoy it, I was using another one app similar to this one where I can save the KML file with comments, notes, photos etc and then I can export a kml file and open it in Google Earth with all the fields (text and numbers) and the Photos that I have in each waypoint automatically . with Mapit I can export the KML and visualize all the fields but not the Photos in each waypoint. How I can do this in Mapit?….is possible work with the photos as a field in google earth?. if not, is a very cool and very useful.

    I prefer export my data (csv) y work on it in excel, resolve mistakes etc, but how can convert my excel file o csv to KML/KMZ file?


    • osedok says:

      You can save your data as CSV directly from Excel, just Google it if you are not sure how to do that. If you need to convert your data to a KML you can use software like ArcGIS or qGIS to do so, as well just Google it to get more details.
      Please do remember however that when you import the data back to MapIt it will not import all the fields but only geometry, name and description.

    I have exported point, line and polygon data as GPX files but when loaded onto QGIS the attributes are missing. CSV export of the point files has worked fine.
    Also having problems converting the GeoJson files to shapefiles using Ogre. Any idea of what is going wrong?

  6. Colleen Archibald says:

    I have sorted out the GeoJson conversion to shapefiles.

  7. Jürgen Schicker says:


    when exporting a line to geosjon or shape GIS will always show the line “closed” like “polygon”.
    I am using ArcGIS and QGIS.
    Do you have a fix for this problem?
