I'm totally new to QGIS, and trying to view a Canadian Topo map as published on an iMac - I don't want to change it.
- the directory contains a lot of files - can all be loaded in one go so I get the whole map, not just pieces of it?
- the CanVec attributes (colour, symbol etc.) aren't retrieved when loading a shape file with vector load, so that doesn't work to see it the way the map maker intended.
I suspect these problems are related, in that there's a file somewhere that lets QGIS tie everything together, but I can't figure out what it is or how to tell QGIS how to use it.
