Vector Layers

Next up in the configuration manual, are the vector layers. You will find that these are much more complex then raster layers. The reason for this, is that you specify which attributes are to be considered as part of the layer, and what styles objects in a vector layer should have.

A vector layer's configuraiton starts out with roughly the same parameters as a raster layer, but then also needs labelling information, attribute information, styling information, snapping rules, etc.
