Server components can be easily deployed in Docker containers serving your GIS projects from the cloud or from your own hardware. Project creators only needs QGIS desktop software with Gisquick plugin installed.

The platform is designed to be applicable in everyday practice and/or for further custom development. More relevant information about Gisquick’s development, including source code, deployment and support for users is published on GitHub.
