Video: Tips for Using QGIS Print Composer

QGIS Print Composer can be a little awkward to use at first.  It is analogous to Layout View in ArcGIS.  We will look at some tips to make it easier to use and understand how to create maps in QGIS.

In the video, we will review a map of 2012 Presidential Election Results, as seen below.

In Part II, I will show you how to create side-by-side map series, which is great to look at changes over time as well as different band combinations in remote sensing.  We will also take a look at creating an atlas or map book, essentially iterating/repeating the map making process by a geographic area.  Lastly, we will take a look at the QGIS Map Showcase on Flickr.

If there is something you would like to see, let me know in the comments section below.

Update #1: Print composer has an add Legend button but in this video I used an image file because I used some fancy rule-based symbology, the legend was not easy to look at. Normally, I would just select add Legend.
