More Advanced

If you have completed the various examples in the Getting Started and Sharing sections, the following will show you how to do slightly more advanced tasks.

  • Vector Styling. The real power and flexibility of vector layers comes when you start to use styling. Not only can you change colours and patterns, you can make the map display in different ways dependent on the attributes associated with each feature.
  • Creating and Editing. So far you have just been using maps created by someone else. Learn how to create new maps and edit existing ones.
  • Need for Speed. We all want immediate responsiveness from QGIS, but sometimes you can have a very large amount of data that needs to be processed when rendering the screen. This section looks at how the choices you make impact on the speed... and what you can do to make things better.
  • Vector Masks. This example shows how to use one layer to modify another to create a mask to highlight another layer.
