In the realm of open source GIS (Geographic Information System) solutions, Camptocamp has emerged as an active contributor driving the evolution and enhancement of the powerful desktop GIS: QGIS. With a dedicated team of developers deeply involved in plugin development and core contributions to QGIS, Camptocamp has a long track record with one of the most used open source GIS solutions.


Plugin Development: Tailored Solutions for QGIS Users

Camptocamp's commitment to QGIS is exemplified through our extensive portfolio of plugins designed to expand the capabilities and usability of the software. These plugins cater to diverse needs amongst our customers and community, empowering users with specialized tools and functionalities.

  • QGIS Hub Plugin: With the QGIS Hub plugin, Camptocamp facilitates efficient data sharing and collaboration by enabling users to connect and synchronize QGIS projects with centralized repositories.

  • Cadastre-fr Plugin: Addressing the demands of land administration and urban planning, Camptocamp's cadastre-fr plugin enriches QGIS with tools for seamless cadastral data integration and management.

  • FTTH-Plugin: for our customer Deutsche Telekom Camptocamp developed a QGIS plugin (Python v3.10) to replace an existing application for structural FTTH planning. The plugin greatly helps to streamline the FTTH planning process.

  • Spreadsheet Layers: QGIS plugin to load layers from spreadsheet files (*.ods, *.xls, *.xlsx). It is one of the most downloaded plugins with more than 400.000 downloads.

Core Development: Fixing bugs, elevating performance and features of QGIS

Camptocamp's team actively contributes to the core of QGIS, addressing critical issues, introducing innovative features, and optimizing performance. This collaborative effort ensures that QGIS remains at the forefront of open source GIS technology.

Some notable contributions include:

  • Enhanced Rendering Capabilities: Advances in rendering techniques, such as improved labeling and symbology options, elevate the visual quality and usability of QGIS projects (Visual Changelog).

  • Efficient Data Handling: Optimizations in data processing and management streamline workflows and enhance efficiency within QGIS (Visual Changelog).

  • Integration with Web Services: Integration enhancements with web services, like WMTS and WFS, broaden QGIS's interoperability and data access capabilities (Visual Changelog).

Further, Camptocamp has been actively supporting its customers with QGIS for years. As we have been doing for Deutsche Bahn since September 2019, focusing on bug fixing, testing, and enhancing performance. With our efforts we have improved project loading speeds, addressed snapping functionality issues, optimized custom input masks, enhanced performance with PostgreSQL/PostGIS databases, and provided support for SAGA processing tools.
