QGIS symbology set

It’s been a while since I’ve updated the status of a notation conventions for QGIS project. Let’s fix it! There is a beta-version of the symbology available. See the screen-shots below (all pictures are clickable), and if you like it –  DOWNLOAD the set, use it and provide a feedback!



How to use:

1. Use QGIS 1.7 or higher.

2. Go to Settings->Style manager.

3. Hit “Import” button.

4. Provide path to the “symbology-ng-style-eng.xml” file in this archive.

5. Pick up needed symbols or choose all of them and hit “Import” button.

Note that there should not be any red circles in symbols after import is complete. If you will see red circles (or do not see some of the symbols despite their names present) it means that paths to some of the SVG icons are broken. You should fix them manually by editing “symbology-ng-style.xml” file LOCATED AT YOUR USRER’S QGIS FOLDER by copying according paths from “symbology-ng-style-eng.xml” file FROM THIS ARCHIVE.

Numbers in the end of the symbol’s name is a scale it is designed for (it is for printing purposes). For example “…50_100k” means that this symbol is suitable for printing in 1:50 000 and 1:100 000 scale.

    Gave me an error.

    Missing files in the folder of downlod (DOWNLOAD the set)

    In the FILL this is fine.

    Lines and points are missing the files.

    You can put them in the folder download please?

    Thank you

    In my case most fill symbols just have “?” in them. Any idea how to handle this issue?

  6. Steve Gautreau says:

    same issue here – most fill symbols are just question marks “?”

  7. Hi there im very interested in the line SVGs you have in the lower screen shots. Is there any chance I could get an SVG file of those please? I can be contacted on tylergriffin70gmail.com
    many thanks
