NoLeM

No.Le.M. is the codename of “NoLegendMap” initiative, for the creation of a map representation protocol with no legend.

The idea is based on Jacques Bertin “Variables” implemented with .svg file format in a way that the legend of data representation is useless. In this way any cartographic information can be represented without the explanatory use of the legend. This can be useful especially in web based map systems and obviously in the field of Geographic Information Systems. Until now the use of file format .svg, was not used in GIS systems, but in recent version of Qgis, became an option of representation. So it could be awesome to create a plugin based in the idea of representing  a map without the need of the legend !

I hope that this idea will be useful for the implementation of such  tool !…for python developers.
