If I had a set of data in QGIS that was gradually shading a state or district the exact way I wanted -- but I also need to portray more information about that state or district with additional colors, is that possible to do using colored borders? If so, can somebody walk me through that? And if not, has anybody else thought of another way to represent multiple things about one location?
I guess the ideal would be something like shading the state lame yellow to bright yellow pending on how high their statistic was -- and if the state was Democratic-controlled, put a blue border around it, and if it was Republican-controlled, put a red border around it. Something like that.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
*Edit: I think I've potentially figured it out by adding another layer and creating my own border-only style and classify one as Democrat (blue) and one as Republican (red). If the polygon fills are 100% transparent and this layer was on top of the other one, I'd imagine that this should work, right? But every time I get to hitting "ok" to where the map should change to reflect the new borders, it always loads forever to the point where I have to 'Force Quit.'
Any thoughts on that? Thanks again!
