Map Layout – Print Composer – QGIS

In this Tutorial Learn How to Create Map Layout in QGIS.

The Print Composer provides growing layout and printing capabilities. It allows you to add elements such as the QGIS map canvas.

Layout Features

Text labels, images, legends, scale bars, basic shapes, arrows, attribute tables, and HTML frames. You can size, group, align, position, and rotate each element and adjust their properties to create your layout.

The layout can be printed or exported to image formats, Postscript, PDF, or SVG format. You can save the layout as a template and load it again in another session.

Now we can start to assemble our map. Go to Project > New Print Composer > composer title, then click OK.

In the Print Composer window open, click on Zoom full to display the full extent of the Layout. Now we would have to bring the map view that we see in the QGIS Canvas.
