Signals

Attributes

accept(self, visitor: QgsStyleEntityVisitorInterface) → bool
clone(self) → QgsHeatmapRenderer
colorRamp(self) → QgsColorRamp

Returns the color ramp used for shading the heatmap.

Returns

color ramp for heatmap

convertFromRenderer(renderer: QgsFeatureRenderer) → QgsHeatmapRenderer
convertSymbolRotation()
convertSymbolSizeScale()
copyRendererData()
create(element: QDomElement, context: QgsReadWriteContext) → QgsFeatureRenderer

Creates a new heatmap renderer instance from XML

dump(self) → str
maximumValue(self) → float

Returns the maximum value used for shading the heatmap.

Returns

maximum value for heatmap shading. If 0, then maximum value will be automatically calculated.

radius(self) → float

Returns the radius for the heatmap

Returns

heatmap radius

renderFeature(self, feature: QgsFeature, context: QgsRenderContext, layer: int = -1, selected: bool = False, drawVertexMarker: bool = False) → bool
renderFeatureWithSymbol()
renderQuality(self) → float

Returns the render quality used for drawing the heatmap.

Returns

render quality. A value of 1 indicates maximum quality, and increasing the value will result in faster drawing but lower quality rendering.

renderVertexMarkerPolyline()
save(self, doc: QDomDocument, context: QgsReadWriteContext) → QDomElement
setColorRamp(self, ramp: QgsColorRamp)

Sets the color ramp to use for shading the heatmap.

Parameters

ramp – color ramp for heatmap. Ownership of ramp is transferred to the renderer.

setMaximumValue(self, value: float)

Sets the maximum value used for shading the heatmap.

Parameters

value – maximum value for heatmap shading. Set to 0 for automatic calculation of maximum value.
