I have a geological map and I want to represent the geology of a new 100 km road. The 100 km fit well in a (for example) 1:250.000 scale map, but I want to represent it at a 1:25.000. In map composer the coverage layer is my (for example) road.shp. The idea is that the different sheets follow the road (and rotate) all time. The number of sheets should be fixed by the scale (in that case, 1:25.000), but if you want to change the scale this numbers should change. The attached picture shows the result of the “grids for atlas plugin -> Generate dynamic grid”. It’s a very close result of my propose but no rotation in the grid.
How can I prepare a coverage layer as much automatic as possible where the rotation is defined by the road and the scale is defined by “scale” in map 0?
(As I did manually in the second screenshot)
I'm trying to prepare atlas following a line or a rute. I follow the instructions of How to create a customizabe table in QGIS Print Composer? but there are two problems:
- The map follow a line but do not rotate. The north is always up.
- The scale varies from map to map and it's determined by the number of segments (created with v.split.length tool) of your line but not controlled in map composer -> main properties -> scale.
Any solution ?
