Creating a mapbook
A mapbook is an automatically generated document, which can also be called an atlas. A mapbook takes a dataset and breaks it down into smaller, detailed maps based on a coverage layer that zooms the larger map to each feature in the coverage in order to make a page of the mapbook. The coverage layer may or may not be the same as the map layer featured on each page of the mapbook. In this recipe, we'll create a mapbook that features all the countries in the world.
For this recipe, you need to download the world countries dataset and put it in a directory named
shapes within your
qgis_data directory from https://github.com/GeospatialPython/Learn/raw/master/countries.zip.
Next, you'll need to install the
PyPDF2 library. ...
