Working With Styles

Styles determine how a map looks when viewed, printed, embedded in a map layout, or exported to any style-conscious format (such as Adobe Illustrator or KML).

Cartographica has a sophisticated style system which provides significant control over how data is shown on the screen and in printed output.

Styles are assigned and manipulated for each layer individually.
