Create legend with LegendSVG

QGIS does not create a proper legend for maps with pie charts or circles with variable size. I wrote a program to produce legends in Scalable Vector Format (SVG). In the QGIS Composer, the result can be added to the map as an image. If necessary, the legend can first be modified with a SVG-editor like Inkscape.

Download the program here:
LegendSVG (Windows)
LegendSVG (Linux)

  1. Met de nieuwste versie (29 april 2012) kan nu ook een legenda worden gemaakt voor een kaart met staafdiagrammen.

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for your program, I donwload and unzip, but cant run in Ubuntu 12.04.
    In the terminal I wrote ./LegendSVG and the result is “can’t execute binary files.”.
    So I wrote sudo chmod +x ./LegendSVG but when I tray to execute ./LegendSVG have the same problem.
    Can you help me?
    PS: I Sorry, I can wrote in dutch and my english is not very good ;-)

    1. The program was compiled with Lazarus on openSUSE. That may be the reason why it does not work on Ubuntu. I also tried the program on Ubuntu, using the OSGeo-Live DVD, and I got the same error message.

  3. Hi again,
    I can run the windows version using Wine in Ubuntu (and is very good program! thanks!) but cant run the linux version.

  4. Hi,

    Thank you for this great tool ! I am working on a QGis plugin that relies heavily on diagram analysis, and I wonder if you would be ok to release the code of your application so that it can be integrated in QGis as a python plugin. Right now the only alternative is the Diagram Legend Plugin, which would be much better if it offered the same functionnalities as your application. I would be happy to contribute to this integration.
