I have a national level dataset consisting of polygons, polylines, points and rasters. I would like to export a map for every sub region (border defined by a polygon shapefile). Is there a simple way of doing this in QGIS?

Eventually I would like to be able to offer each sub region as stand alone maps in multiple formats and resolutions.

Many thanks for any suggestions!


Check out the Atlas QGIS plugin. I find it much easy to use then the EasyPrint plugin as it allows you to use composers for building the templates.

  • Yep found this late last night! Bit buggy but got it working... excellent tool! Need to ensure that the "coverage" layer is the uppermost for it to work properly!

  • @Nathan W, I found the download from plugins.qgis.org/plugins/atlas. Is there an XML repository URL that automatically checks for newer versions? May 5 '12 at 16:04

You might be looking for the EasyPrint plugin. Here is an excellent blog article by @Darren Cope that should help guide you through the process.
