I am struggling to create the following Atlas :

I have a coverage layer containing polygons. I want to create an atlas where each map contains polygons that have the same attribute vale (blockname). The image should also be saved as the blockname.

I just cannot figure it out. By the way I am using QGIS 2.6.1. Also I am joining a csv file with attributes to the polygon layer.

  • Thank you underdark. As a basic user of QGIS I just cannot figure out your link's instructions. Should I be using the filter? If so then what should the expression be? I have tried the following, to no avail : $atlasfeature = "blockname". Thank you, I appreciate your help.

    Do you want the extents to be controlled by the atlas? Or do you want the extents to stay the same and just change the symbology based on the attribute?

  • Jesse, hello and thank you for replying. Not sure if I understand your question. Please be patient with a newbie. I have a layer with many polygons in it. I want to create maps (with the atlas) where all the polygons has the same attribute value for a certain field. The layer is also joined with a layer (which contains a csv file). Hope I make sense. Regards
