  • The Add Spotzi Layer dialog box opens, displaying a list of your datasets.
  • Select a dataset name from the list, or search for a table name to filter the list, and click OK
  • Your dataset is downloaded to your PC or Macbook and appears in the QGIS Layers Panel.

Step 2: Start Editing


  • First of all we need to turn on the “Edit” function in QGIS by pressing the pencil icon in the menu.
  • The sample below shows regions in Germany. After you turn on the edit function all features will turn red.
