This is a very generic map production question in QGIS. I am trying to add a "You are here" symbol in QGIS layouts for a fire evacuation map like this one below?

enter image description here

There are more than one "You Are Here" points depending on the location. So I was thinking of adding a point table with all "You Are Here" locations and then in Composer have automatically created these symbols.

Is it possible?

    If you are using the map atlas, you can hide all but the current feature: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/228079/qgis-atlas-catalogue – JGH Apr 29 '19 at 11:52
  • I think @JGH's suggestion is the way to go. Create "you are here" symbols for all the points in the map canvas. Then filter them based on the atlas. – csk Apr 29 '19 at 15:53
