Quick graticule in QGIS

It’s been a long time since I tried QGIS Map Composer, but thought I’d give it a try since I needed a graticule/measured grid graphic. I was surprised at how well the grid feature worked, along with labels and including several label placement options. The scalebar tool is also very nifty. I had my map, grid, etc. all laid out in a couple minutes.

Bonus feature: exported to SVG and (despite warnings from QGIS) had perfectly usable SVG to play with in Inkscape. Nice work folks!
