I'm new to QGIS, indeed fairly new to GIS systems in general. I have been asked to create about 20 small maps for a local historical society. The maps are for walkers to follow various routes passing locations of historic interest.
Each of the maps is to show numbered "points of interest" (POIs) - some maps have only 5, others have 12 or more. I have found and imported the symbols I want into QGIS. Each of the symbols consists of an integer enclosed in a circle.
My first attempt at getting the symbols onto the maps was to create a separate layer for each symbol. This seems to work OK but means that a large number of layers have to be created for each map - one for each POI. Is there a more efficient way of doing the job?
The POIs have only the 2 attributes, ID and the relevant integer. I was hoping to be able to just drag them to their correct location on the map.
I have SVG images of numbers 1 to 15 each in a circle. I want to be able to place them on my map at specific locations to indicate points of interest. How do I do this please?
