QGIS Map Design is out now!
My latest book “QGIS Map Design”, co-authored with well-known cartography expert Gretchen Peterson and with a foreword by the founder of QGIS, Gary Sherman himself, is now available as e-book.
In three parts, the book covers layer styling, labeling, and designing print maps. All recipes come with data and project files so you can reproduce the maps yourself.
Just in time for the big QGIS 2.14 LTR release, the paperback will be available March 1st.
On a related note, I am also currently reviewing the latest proofs of the 3rd edition of “Learning QGIS”, which will be updated to QGIS 2.14 as well.
Congratulations, Anita! Your contributions in maximizing the cartographic capabilities of QGIS, along with all of your contributions on the usability, etc., of QGIS, are a boon to the community!
Hi Anita, thanks for this good work. It inspired us a lot. Through reading the book I found some errata and I have some suggestions. What is the best way to let you know about them?
Hi Pieter, it’s great to hear that you liked the book. Feel free to email your suggestions to locate press or to me directly. Thank you and best wishes

I am looking for some advice. I am a restoration ecologist and work a lot with landscape design and have decided I need to start moving into digital design to compliment my drawing work. QGIS has been recommended to me so I would like to start educating myself on how to use this tool. Can you recommend a book or a set of tutorials that you think would help me? My main work is mapping and designing productive and regenerative landscapes, I work a lot with keyline and permaculture designs.
I really appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you.
If you have no background in GIS, I recommend starting with Discover QGIS http://locatepress.com/dqp. In case you have some GIS-background, I recommend Learning QGIS 3rd ed. https://www.packtpub.com/big-data-and-business-intelligence/learning-qgis-third-edition. Once you know the basics, QGIS Map Design https://locatepress.com/qmd will show you how to create good maps, that go beyond default GIS output.
