In Publishing interactive web maps using QGIS, I presented two plugins for exporting web maps from QGIS. Today, I want to add an new member to this family: the qgis2web plugin is the successor of qgis-ol3 and combines exports to both OpenLayers3 as well as Leaflet.
The plugin is under active development and currently not all features are supported for both OpenLayers3 and Leaflet, but it’s a very convenient way to kick-off a quick webmapping project.
Here’s an example of an OpenLayers3 preview with enabled popups:
And here is the same map in Leaflet with the added bonus of a nice address search bar which can be added automatically as well:
The workflow is really straight forward: select the desired layers and popup settings, pick some appearance extras, and then don’t forget to hit the Update preview button otherwise you might be wondering why nothing happens ;)
I’ll continue testing these plugins and am looking forward to seeing what features the future will bring.
