Viewing Your Itinerary in QGIS

QGIS is a free and open-source geographic information system (GIS) software that allows users to visualize, edit, and analyze geospatial data. If you have created an itinerary on the Alpaca Travel platform, you can easily view your itinerary data in QGIS by adding a Vector Tile Connection.
