Yesterday, we had our first meeting with Marco Bernasocchi, who just started his Google Summer of Code project. The project goals are:

  • porting QGIS to the Android platform
  • adapt the QGIS GUI for tablet computers
  • write a driver for the built-in GPS
  • create a QGIS “mini” application for mobile phones

Marco Hugentobler is mentoring the project and updated information will be available on a QGIS Wiki page. We wish Marco good luck and are looking forward to a portable QGIS this year!
