Description

Some more default styles could be added to standard package. Several candidates are available, e.g.
https://github.com/charleyglynn/OSM-Shapefile-QGIS-stylesheets
http://anitagraser.com/2012/02/25/light-styles-for-osm-layers-in-qgis/
etc.

History

#1 Updated by Anita Graser over 5 years ago

Do you mean symbols or styles? Styles depend a lot on the lineage of the OSM data (Shapefile export, SpatiaLite from ogr2ogr, ... all different).

#2 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 5 years ago

I mean both, with a focus on styles. I understand there are different export methods. I think we could choose one, and add the styles adapted to it. Geofabrik seems a good candidate.

#3 Updated by Anita Graser over 5 years ago

Do we already ship whole styles with QGIS? How will the user know that there is a style e.g. for OSM Shapefiles from Geofabrik?

#4 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 5 years ago

I think adding symbols would already be a good step forward. Adding styles would be an useful improvement. We could add a note in the manual about the usage of styles. The name could also help to figure it out (e.g. geofabrik_osm_polygon.qml).
Thanks for your thoughts.
