I am working with QGIS Composer 2.0 and I would like to add a second map.
What I would like to do is to have a main map that takes up the majority of the print area. This map, Main Map, will have four layers active from QGIS Desktop.
The second map, Overview Map, is a small map identifying the overview of the area. The overview map will be at a different scale than Main Map, and it will also only have one layer active from QGIS Desktop.
The issue I am having is that when I add a new map, the map areas are updated when I change the layers in QGIS Desktop.
QGIS 2.0 has a new function for Overviews, but the documentation is not overly clear on how to use it.
In ArcMap, you can set up different views, which allows for different data, scale, symbology, etc. ensuring that the different maps in the print layout are independent.
Is there a way to do something like this in QGIS Composer?
Two maps with different layers, from the same QGIS Desktop instance?
