- The various styling options are located in the ‘Style’ tab of the Properties dialog.
- Click on the drop-down button inthe Style dialog, you will see there are four options available. Select Graduated. Select the column “year_2012” and the color ramp of your preference and press “Classify”. You can also change layer transparency:
- Click apply or ok. You will see different countries appearing in different colors according to the “year_2012” attribute.
