I have a location point. there are several constraints areas surrounding the point. Is there a way to calculate the closest point of this constraint from my point and to display the distances as a measurement in print composer.
Further to the comments below see the above image.
The red point is the subject site. The hatched areas are natural heritage constraints areas such as Natura 2000 site and local designated sites. For the purposes of reports it is necessary to state (for example) that site X is 7Km from the nearest point of the SPA, 9Km from the nearest point of an AONB, 15Km from the nearest point....etc. It would be ideal if this could be plotted rather than using a layer and snapping if it was possible to use an "autoCAD type function" where by measurements are displayed as an attribute to the line rather than a lable plotted in the print composer.
