In the previous session we learn about creating basic map. Today we throw light on QGIS 3.2.1- Download/export map in PDF, SVG, Image.

Try our tool for creating interactive maps without writing a single code. IGIS Map Tool

QGIS 3.2.1- Download/export map

First add a vector layer  from exercise data (we are using). If want to use data from other sources like Google Map or bing.

Or else download sample data for study-

QGIS allows you to create multiple map from single layer. For creating map layout. Go to project >>>New print layout

Try IGIS Map Tool for creating beautiful map and export map into PDF and Image

When you finally done with all the requirements of map, you can easily export map by buttons provided in the layout toolbar. If you want to print then it also can done with print button.

You can exports as following formats:

  • Export as Image
  • Export as SVG
  • Export as PDF

You can export map as image in PNG, BMP, CUR, TIFF, JPEG etc.

SVG format is best for cartographer because editing of map require for publication. SVG stands for “Scalable Vector Graphic”.

PDF format is easy going for clients so that they get print the pdf if they require.
