Advanced Layer Styles in QGIS
New symbology has been around for quite a while now, but the last weeks have seen some great new additions to this functionality. Let’s have a look at what can be achieved:
Using ‘Marker Placement’ options in ‘Marker Line’, we can now create fancy arrows pointing in or against line direction.
Using ‘Marker Line’, we can also create nice looking railway styles. The ‘sleepers’ are created using vertical line markers at certain intervals.
Besides normal and SVG polygon fill styles, new symbology now offers centroid and outline styles. Outline styles offer all options found in line style dialog (simple, marker and line decoration).
I am very excited about these improvements. They’re very important for symbology on geologic maps!
