Chapter 5. Creating Great Maps

In this chapter, we will cover the important features that enable us to create great maps. We will first go into advanced vector styling, building on what we covered in Chapter 2, Viewing Spatial Data. Then, you will learn how to label features by following examples for point labels as well as more advanced road labels with road shield graphics. We will also cover how to tweak labels manually. Then, you will get to know the print composer and how to use it to create printable maps and map books. Finally, we will explain how to create web maps directly in QGIS to present our results online.
