QGIS is a complete GIS software. It has extensive plugin and tools we can use to do so many things. In this article, I am going to show you how to create regular points along the line in QGIS. This is a useful tool for me and maybe for you who needs to create a set of points with regular distance. At the end of this article, you will be able to create something like this below.
As you can see, I have three lines in my layer. And then those lines now have some points at regular distance. We are going to use the Points along geometry tool.
Steps to Create Regular Points along Line
- First we need to open the line/poly line layer. You can also use polygon as the base if you want.
- Find Points along Geometry tool under the Processing Toolbox.
- Double-click the Points along Geometry Tool
- Select the input layer (layer with the lines or polygons)
- Specify the distance
- Click Run
Now you should see the points along the lines.
