Everytime I use graduated symbology in QGIS I am in doubt how the intervals precisely are split.

Doing some manual testing with integer attributes I can see that the "real" intervals are like the ones I have manually edited in the legend column.

Is there any way to automatically make QGIS more "explicit" in the legend?

Or at least in the Values column write 2,00<-5,00 so I know that 2 is not included in that interval.

The splitting values between intervals in graduated symbology

  • It is manual but you can click in the Legend column for any row and change what is displayed there.

Indeed the standard settings could be improved. However, you can easily change these within "legend format":

enter image description here

%1 describes the first value (lower) and %2 the second (upper) one. Everything is else is up to you, how you want to display your legend. E.g. from >%1 to <=%2

  • A usable workaround - as long as I can remember that QGIS actually shows %1<-%2 :-)

  • If that is a workaround for you, what would not?
