There are also two style variants at GIS-Lab, see

> Hi all.
> I think an automatic styling of freshly downloaded OSM data would be a
> big plus for QGIS, especially for courses (I do a lot of them all
> around, and it is always painful to customize them, and embarrassing to
> reuse data from my region).
> I know of two approaches to the problem:
> * https://github.com/3liz/osm-in-qgis
> * Mayeul work e.g. on http://www.outdoormaps.org/simple_map.htm
> I think with a minimal effort we could incorporate that in QGIS:
> * the user downloads the data from OSM and loads them into spatialite,
> with the new tool
> * he adds the styles (please note we have implemented a way to
> automatically store and load from spatialite).
> Could we smooth out the path for this, and add the above mentioned
> styles as default ones for QGIS?
> Could we document this as an early entry for the course material under
> preparation?
> All the best, and thanks.
