I have a series of plot points in the UK. All I want to do is overlay a simplified map of the UK, ideally just an outline.
I obtained some simplified colour maps from the OS website, added as a layer, but I can’t see the points beneath. I can’t merge them. Perhaps the map has to be a
vector rather than what I have , a
I tried altering the layer order but no change. I am afraid.
If I "Zoom to layer" then it will show the layer of choice. But I can't see both together even if I alter opacity.
I think I am loading the map raster wrong, I am just loading it from the Browser and selecting the file directly. Perhaps it needs a bit more than that.
