I'm trying to create 5 maps in composer showing the same layer features but different extents of a map (attached an image to give everyone an example). I've opted to use atlas to save me manually creating 5 maps... but I have hit a barrier.
I think where I am going wrong is that I am trying to create an atlas based off a point layer (which is my coverage layer) so it is creating individual maps (about 60 +) for the points displayed.
However... I would like atlas to generate 5 maps for the different geographical extents that cover those points?
I right in thinking that I'll have to go and create a polygon shapefile that creates say a bounding box around 5 different areas to contain the points of interest? & then select this as my coverage layer when generating an atlas?
Does anyone know a way to achieve what I am trying to do? Any views or general help would be great.
