Chicago
City in Illinois
Chicago, on Lake Michigan in Illinois, is among the largest cities in the U.S. Famed for its bold architecture, it has a skyline bristling with skyscrapers such as the iconic John Hancock Center, sleek, 1,451-ft. Willis Tower and neo-Gothic Tribune Tower. The city is also renowned for its museums, including the Art Institute and its expansive collections, including noted Impressionist works.

Population: 2.719 million (2013)
Sports teams: Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks

Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States. With over 2.7 million residents, it is the most populous city in the state of Illinois and the Midwestern United States, and the county seat of Cook County. The Chicago metropolitan area, often referred to as Chicagoland, has nearly 10 million people and is the third-largest in the U.S.

Chicago was incorporated as a city in 1837, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed, and grew rapidly in the mid-nineteenth century. The city is an international hub for finance, commerce, industry, technology, telecommunications, and transportation: O'Hare International Airport is the second busiest airport in the world when measured by aircraft traffic; the region also has the largest number of U.S. highways and rail road freight. In 2012, Chicago was listed as an alpha global city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network, and ranked seventh in the world in the 2014 Global Cities Index. Chicago has the third largest gross metropolitan product in the United States—about $630.3 billion according to 2014-2016 estimates. The Chicago metropolitan area is also home to several universities, including Northwestern University, University of Chicago, and University of Illinois at Chicago.

Chicago City limits

In 2014, Chicago had 50.2 million international and domestic visitors. Chicago's culture includes the visual arts, novels, film, theater, especially improvisational comedy, and music, particularly jazz, blues, soul, gospel and house music. It also has professional sports teams in each of the major professional leagues. Chicago has many nicknames, the best-known being the Windy City.

Geography
Chicago's present natural geography is a result of the large glaciers of the Ice Age, namely the Wisconsinan Glaciation that carved out the modern basin of Lake Michigan (which formed from the glacier's meltwater). The city of Chicago itself sits on the Chicago Plain, a flat plain that was once the bottom of ancestral Lake Chicago. This plain has very little topographical relief, in fact, topographical relief is so unusual in the plain that what would be unnoticed hills and ridges in other locales have been given names. The highest natural point within the city limits is in the Beverly neighborhood at 41°42′12.5″N 87°40′37″W at 672 ft (205 m). In pioneer days, this hill was called Blue Island, so named because at a distance it looked like an island set in a trackless prairie sea. In fact it, and the nearby Stony Island, were both islands in Lake Chicago, as it receded. On the North side, the diagonals Clark Street and Ridge Boulevard run along ridges that were once sandbars in the Lake.

Chicago topographical relief
One special feature of the Chicago area was the now-vanished Mud Lake in the Des Plaines River watershed. During heavy periods of rain or when the Des Plaines overflowed its banks due to downstream ice dams in the early spring, the river would flow through Mud Lake to the South Branch of the Chicago River, forming a favorite portage for early traders and creating the path of the future I&M and Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canals. When the city we know today was initially founded in the 1830s, the land was swampy and most of the early building began on low dunes around the Chicago River's mouth. Indeed, Chicago's low lying geography, which ultimately became crucial to its boom town development (as the site of the Chicago Portage and canal), could not initially attract substantial early settlement because the tall grass prairie around its lake and river systems was underlain by hard packed glacial clay, making much of the area forbidding wetlands. Thus, the paradox of Chicago's development as a city in the 19th century became taking advantage of this geography, but also overcoming its limitations.

North of the city of Chicago, there are steep bluffs and ravines that run along Lake Michigan. In contrast, south of the city of Chicago into Northwest Indiana it is without bluffs, but instead has sand dunes. The greatest example of these can be seen at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, where some dunes reach up to almost 200 feet. Farther inland, a series of moraines surrounds the Chicago Plain. This surrounding area is hilly and higher than the Chicago Plain. Past the moraines, the land flattens out again, but is interspersed with a few deep river valleys such as the Illinois River, Fox River, Des Plaines River, and Kankakee River. Here you may find rock cliffs and rock ravines, which are absent from the interior Chicago area (the ravines of the north shore and south suburbs are soil ravines without any rock).

City limits of Chicago.
Also, a very large limestone quarry (Thornton Quarry) exists just south of the city of Chicago in the suburb of Thornton. It was once a coral reef when the Midwest was covered by a warm inland sea (hundreds of millions of years before the glaciation of the Chicago area). The rest of the Chicago area does not have bedrock this close to the surface.

How to Create QGIS Atlas Mapbooks
to Create QGIS Atlas Mapbooks


Put Your Mapping in Auto-Pilot with QGIS Atlas

Like a modern-day mechanical mapping machine, you can automate your map output.

For 99% of us, there are 2 surefire ways to create mapbooks:

1. ArcGIS Data Driven Pages
2. QGIS Atlas

We’ve reviewed pumping out maps with ArcGIS data driven pages. Esri’s data driven pages works great. It’s solid.

But today we want to examine an equally-effective method with a QGIS Atlas tutorial.
Why use QGIS Atlas?

The QGIS Atlas is a true open source technique to generate hundreds of maps in minutes. In the map-making business, this means being efficient without compromising art and intricacy.

QGIS’ Composer has the ability to create an “Atlas” built-in. In open source QGIS software, before version 1.9 it used to a plugin. Now, it’s integrated into QGIS core.

All you need to do is select a map layer containing geometries as your index layer. Each geometry in the index layer is used to create each individual page. QGIS Atlas dynamically changes the view extent to each feature in the index layer. Save tens, hundreds or thousands of maps as a single PDF or separate images.

There are tons of options to customize your map output. Let’s get our feet wet with a QGIS Atlas tutorial.
How to Create a QGIS Atlas Mapbook

Let’s use the the Natural Earth populated places layer. We have 4 records in the attribute table with point locations of New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston.

This means QGIS Atlas will generate 4 pages because there are 4 locations. If you have 1000 records, QGIS Atlas will produce 1000 pages.
Step 1: Create a new composer window

Click File > New Composer

QGIS Composer is where you set up your map output.


 

Step 2: Add a new map item

In your new QGIS Composer, select the New Map Item tool. Drag and create a rectangle in your Composer map canvas.

 
Step 3: Click “Generate an Atlas” in the “Atlas Generation” pane

In the right-pane, check the box “Atlas Generation”

Step 4: Choose your coverage layer

Your coverage layer is the index layer. It is used to create each individual page. QGIS Atlas dynamically changes the view extent to each feature in the coverage layer. The number of records in the coverage determines how many pages will be in your mapbook.

We have the 4 most populated cities (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston) in our index layer. This means our mapbook will output 4 pages.

Step 5: Select “Controlled By Atlas” in “Item Properties”

In the “Item Properties” tab, check the box for “Controlled By Atlas”

Step 6: Export QGIS Atlas Mapbook

Click Atlas > Export Atlas as PDF


 

Result: QGIS Atlas Mapbook

The result is a 4-page PDF of each feature in the index layer. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston are dynamically displayed with very little effort by the cartographer.

 
The Nitty-Gritty Details in QGIS Atlas

QGIS Atlas has additional functionality for you to customize your mapbooks. The set up and possibilities are endless, in a good way.
QGIS Atlas Preview Toolbar

We love the way you can preview mapbooks using the QGIS Atlas toolbar. It’s a unique for you to get a feel for how the mapbook will look when exported. Push the Preview Atlas button to enable this feature.

From there, you can flip through the pages of your mapbook one-by-one. Here you can export as SVG, PDF or images.

Customize your Exports Uniquely

What will be the file names of your maps or mapbook? The Output Filename Expression controls the file names of your export.

When you check Single File Export When Possible , the output PDF file will be in a single PDF. When this option is not checked, the output will be separate PDFs.

How will the mapbook be sorted? This can be controlled using the Sort By and dropdown.

Delve into Scales and Margins

In the Item Properties pane, you must select Controlled by Atlas . With a polygon feature as your coverage layer, you can set up margins around the feature. This means that the scale will dynamically adjust itself.

For example:

When you set up 10% around the continents polygon, this is how much margin will be around each feature. Here is how the continent of Africa will look with a 10% margin:

Africa continent with a 10% margin

Here is Africa with a 50% margin:

Africa with a 50% margin
Generate Dynamic Text and Dynamic Everything as Labels

Dynamic text is a label that updates automatically based on a property of a map. If you want to dynamically label a city name in your map, click Add New Label . Under Item Properties , click Insert an Expression .

Under Fields and Values , double-click the field you want to dynamically be displayed in the map window. The expression will be similar to [% “NAME” %] :

QGIS Atlas has its own list of functions that can be added as labels. This includes everything from the feature number to the number of features in the mapbook.
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Pull Off a Strip Map Along a Line

Okay, the header is deceiving. There is no strip map tool in QGIS.

But if you want to use QGIS Atlas along a line, all you have to do is split it into segments. And there is a tool to do that in GRASS. The v.split.length function splits the line into equal segments defined by the user. This means that QGIS Atlas will generate maps for each line segment.

Final Thoughts on QGIS Atlas

QGIS has its own little map-making factory and it’s called QGIS Atlas. Hundreds of mapping monkeys would have a hard time competing with this well-oiled machine. Automation is becoming key in a world begging for spatial answers instantly.

QGIS Atlas is gaining steam. With a little bit of practice, and this QGIS Atlas tutorial, you have the necessary tools to build your own atlas with authority.

Map with confidence. Map with speed. Map with automation.

QGIS Atlas is the only robust open source option to generate beautiful maps without compromising cartography.
