Description:
QGIS has a plethora of fun styling features, so why create a boring map! Showcasing some symbology and map styling I made during the 30-Day Map Challenge, we will explore some fun and interesting symbology settings. Layer Blending Modes, Raster Band manipulation, and parameterized SVG files are just some of the fun cool things we will be exploring.

This session will also be user-driven! You're invited to ask questions regarding symbology and styling, or even share some cool maps and symbology from either your personal map collection, or from the 30 day map challenge yourself!

Adding more events

You can do this too! We really encourage others to follow our initiative, using the wiki page link below to organise your plans (just add a section below the last one). You can host virtual meetups in the Jitsi room, plan your next steps to take QGIS further down the road to world domination and much much more. We encourage language and region-specific huddles, documentation improvement sessions, bug fixing, making beautiful maps, and working together to do amazing things with QGIS.

We would really love to see more events offered from our country user groups and broader user base. The content can be at any skill level and in any language you like, and the times can overlap if needed. So please feel free to organise your activities on this wiki page. The QGIS Open Day is also an ideal time to hold virtual country user group meet-ups - please share your activities on the open day schedule, so that even people from outside of your country user group can benefit from your presentations. Contact me (see below) if you need help adding your events to the wiki page.

About QGIS Open Day

Dear QGIS Users

On Friday, 25th November 2022 we will be holding our monthly QGIS Open Day! What is a QGIS Open Day you may be wondering to yourself? It is an initiative to replace the wonderful community meetups we used to hold every six months when times were different. Like our in-person meetings, the event is organised on the principle of self-organisation and community participation.
