Has QGIS progressed to the point of having a Data Driven Pages type tool set yet? Or perhaps something similar to the old DS MapBook pre arcgis 10?

That feature is called Atlas in QGIS and you'll find it as part of the Print Composer. It's described in the user manual.

  • Thanks underdark. I have explored this tool a bit, does it produce any vector outputs? Also, I have not be able to find any "strip map" functionally similar to arcgis ddp, just the grid map. We are looking to produce a series of page polygons based on a contiguous polyline aka "strip map".

  • @sirgeo Can you provide an example of "strip map". I'm not familiar with what that is.

  • @sirgeo ah, so the point is the rotation?

  • yes, rotation and having vector output capabilities... does this seem like something QGIS can presently do? If not, when do you think it might be added?
