Given that it is already understood that the QGIS composer atlas function makes it possible to print separate pages based on a 'coverage' layer, what basic range of functions/outputs can be achieved with this tool?
The QGIS print composer atlas capability is powerful. I ask the question because even having understood the basic functionality it's really difficult to grasp the wider capabilities of this tool.
(For example, is it possible to rotate output maps, is it possible to change scales for different maps, is it possible to show and hide features, and so on?)
(I'm not convinced this is a valid question for Stackexchange - I judge that it is but I'm happy enough if others strongly disagree - the question could be re-phrased... where can I find a clear list of capabilities? I'm asking because I can't find such a list - the documentation doesn't really provide this.)
