Just a quick one.
This afternoon I was having a go at getting our work MapInfo layers to look the same in QGIS as they do in MapInfo. I wanted to do this; 1) So I can print maps from both systems for people and they are a consistent style 2) Would rather use QGIS for every day map work. 3) To see what they compare like. I think it came out pretty good, apart from few symbols that I didn’t get time to finish.
Note that MapInfo has anti-aliasing and transparency turned off, as it makes MapInfo very slow.
EDIT: To be fair here is both with the best settings turned on. They are pretty much the same, which is a good thing.
