This tutorial provides a set of steps that users can follow to style layers and compose a map using Composer.

For this tutorial, you will need to download the following files from the Natural Earth dataset:

Also download the following file, originally taken from the Natural Earth III extra data:

These four files should be imported into Composer as new layers. This tutorial will assume that the layers were renamed to be countries, roads, places, and DEM, respectively.


For information on how to load this data into Composer, please see the Composer tutorial.

The following pages will demonstrate how to style each of these layers to compose a map. The tutorial is divided into five steps. The first four steps will style each of the layers individually, and then the final step will be to compose the finished map.
