I have a little problem when create atlas with QGIS but I'm new and I have a step by step explanation.

I have a shapefile with 2 columns a and b:

a     b    
1     abc
2     cde
3     abc
4     efg
5     abc

I need create atlas with only b attributes, without double values. Any suggestions?

The atlas must be have 3 pages.

With "abc", "cde" and "efg" not 5 pages one for line.

I send you 2 pictures, what I mean lose some polygons. The first is the original shape, the second is the dissolved shape. You can see there aren't some polygons. I don't understand why.

Original shape

Dissolved shape

  • Welcome to GIS SE, can you elaborate more what you mean by "double values"? – artwork21 Jan 30 '17 at 18:25

You must to convert your layer to another layer without doubles..

For example, you could use "Dissolve" tool.

And then, you'll do the atlas with the new layer.

  • I have try to use dissove tool but i don't understand, why I lose some polygons of my shape. – Davide Jan 30 '17 at 18:42
  • Don't lose polygons, dissolve tool agregate polygons – Carlos López Quintanilla Jan 30 '17 at 18:47
  • Ok, I see. You have a topological errors. You should to "clean" your layer. pe GRASS v.clean (tool "bpol"). – Carlos López Quintanilla Jan 30 '17 at 22:12
  • I never use GRASS and I don't know it... I must open "QGIS Desktop 2.18.2 with GRASS 7.0.5"? – Davide Jan 30 '17 at 22:20

    Carlos is right, run dissolve on that layer with column b selected. This will create multi-polygons. On atlas, they will one create one page. – Alexandre Neto May 18 '18 at 22:15
