I have recently shifted to QGIS from ArcGIS and am looking for some help/pointers with the following:
Does QGIS have a method by which I can specify a lat-lon coordinate (or a utm x,y coordinates, coordinate system not imp), and get all features that lie within a certain radius of this point?
I downloaded the 3rd party plugins for QGIS and after looking through all of them, didn't find anything with this functionality (though I could have very well not understood something completely). I am considering writing a plugin in case something doesn't already exist
Edit: I looked at the option under: View -> Select -> Select Features By Radius. This seems to be similar in concept to what I am aiming to do (except that the center needs to be specified).
