From Does QGIS have the equivalent of ArcGIS's Layer (*.LYR) file? my understanding is that these two file types can be considered equivalent in functionality:
- Layer File (*.lyr) of ArcGIS for Desktop
- Layer Definition File (*.qlr) of QGIS
There are currently tags for each:
- layer-file with 50 questions
A file with a .lyr extension that stores the path to a source dataset and other layer properties, including symbology.
- layer-definition with 1 question
layer-definition stores information about a layer in a file that can be re-added to a project
Do we need both?
