Conflicting measurement units with buffer ftools
I have a shapefile as input. How could I create a circle with a radius of exactly 500 meters, using QGIS?
Thank you very much.
This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
If you need a polygon that is like a circle, you can select a point, then use Vector->Geoprocessing Tools->Buffer(s). Set the buffer distance to the desired radius.
Note that it will be a polygon when you save it to a shapefile. It'll look round at some scales though :-)
