Abstract: We prove the equivalence between geometric and analytic definitions of quasiconformality for a homeomorphism $f\colon X\rightarrow Y$ between arbitrary locally finite separable metric measure spaces, assuming no metric hypotheses on either space. When $X$ and $Y$ have locally $Q$-bounded geometry and $Y$ is contained in an Alexandrov space of curvature bounded above, the sharpness of our results implies that, as in the classical case, the modular and pointwise outer dilatations of $f$ are related by $K_O(f)= \operatorname {ess sup} H_O(x,f)$.
