Is it possible to use a gradient fill on a polygon in QGIS?
I would like to have my polygons with a colour at the edges, fading to clear/white as it moves away from the edge. The majority of the centre of the polygon will be white or clear.
It is something people I know who use Illustrator can do. I wondered if there was a way to emulate it in QGIS.
Here is an example. I would like something like the purple shading.
This method suggested below does work, however it produces some annoying extra bits for my polygons. For example, see the image below:
I am unsure how to remove these. I cannot use a mask as I need to be able to see the base mapping and other data outside of this polygon on layers that are below this layer. Using a mask would obscure all of these layers.
I have included a link to Underdarks blog post about this, which gives more detail, and contains the code to set this up.
