The QGIS Style Manager is a very powerful cartography and styling tool. It allows you to create, store, re-use, and even share styles you use in QGIS. This is specially useful if you have specific styles that you commonly utilize. Here I’m sharing styles I created based on the Land Use Categories and Color Coding Guide (Annex 1) of the HLURB CLUP Guidebook Vol. 3 (2014)

The style is available from the QGIS Styles Repository or on GitHub.

To load the styles in QGIS:

  • you can download the Style XML file located here or in the QGIS Style Repository and Import it as File in the QGIS Style Manager;
  • you can simply import the style from this URL: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/benhur07b/qgis-style-hlurb-land-use-zoning-color-codes/main/styles/hlurb-luc-color-coding-2014.xml.

To do this:

  • Go to Settings -> Style Manager… in the Menu bar. This will open the Style Manager Window.
  • On the bottom left of the Style Manager Window, click Import/Export -> Import Items. This will open the Import Item(s) dialog.
    • If you select File in the Import From option, select the XML file you downloaded.
    • If you select URL in the Import From option, use this URL: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/benhur07b/qgis-style-hlurb-land-use-zoning-color-codes/main/styles/hlurb-luc-color-coding-2014.xml
      • Click Fetch items
  • A preview of the styles should be available for selection.
  • Select all styles (or just the styles you want).
  • Click Import.
  • IF A WARNING APPEARS THAT THE STYLE ALREADY EXISTS AND ASKS YOU IF YOU WANT TO OVERWRITE IT, JUST CLICK YES TO ALL OR NO TO ALL
  • The styles should now be available under the HLURB LUC Color Coding (2014) tag and can be used for styling your layers.
