Given a specific (locally extended/stored) symbology and styling in QGIS which refers to several different shapefiles or tables (GeoPackage/Spatialite), how can I easily move or share this with another QGIS desktop user?
Currently, the QGIS symbology is managed in the project file (
.qgs) plus there are configuration settings like symbology and font paths. So the symbology is "hard wired" to the dataset and to local symbologies and fonts.
What I want is to publish a single "generic/template" symbology (i.e. signature/symbol settings) with a mapping to exchangeable datasets names - all in paths relative to the symbology (but without the dataset). ArcGIS knows a similar thing they call
.MDX and "Map Package".
An example would be a topographic map style from an authority ("mytopostyle" with
.qgs, symbole/text fonts, etc.) referring to
mydata, which is then published and applied to different, separate regions containing all the same data schema (files
mydata_region_B.sqlite , ...).
