I´ve got some polygons that I want to colourize by multiple columns. Can this be done or will I have to edit the attributes? Some polygons only have data-attributes in 1 one column, where as other have data in both column 1,2 and 3. I´m thinking of the concept like the pie chart function in the diagrams-function in layer properties. In this case I want my polygons splitted in colors by the values in the columns.
If I understand you correctly, your polygons will be colored based on multiple data columns. There are two ways to do this:
- Create a new data column and use the field calculator to classify your polygons based your data
- Use rule based styling (preferably!). This is a complex topic, but this excellent blog post will get you started, and there is additional online material available, e.g. by linfiniti or even QGIS' documentation (use search).
