I have a map of a world created in a novel. It's currently a JPEG. I imported it into QGIS as a raster layer. Now I want to add points to it and some data so that I can color code them etc.
I know how to do all this in ArcGIS but my license will expire soon so I'm trying to learn how to redo my map in QGIS.
My specific questions:
What do I do in QGIS to be able to add points to the map? In ArcGIS I would save it as a shapefile and then use the "Editor" function. I can't seem to find the parallel function in QGIS.
So I think this is a 2 step process: 1. Convert the raster image into a shapefile, and 2. open an editor that will allow me to draw points on the map.
