Managing large data files, vector and raster, in QGIS 3

by boberdorf   Last Updated September 11, 2019 21:22 PM

I work for a local authority so use data covering a large area. Therefore some datasets I use become large and cumbersome.

For example I have a vector layer for contours and a raster layer for hillshade. As I am relatively inexperienced I created Booth of these of a series of tiled points and created a single file. I am happy with the results but performance is slower.

Is there is a way to manage files for my own use that is both quick to display but still easy to use in analyses. Ideally I wouldn't need to load individual tiles of data as required, as I roam across the area alot in a day and would be turning data on and off
