The random point tool in QGIS 2.4 works perfectly fine through the GUI, but I can't figure out how to automate this tool via Python and/or the modeller.
Specifically, under the menu items:
Vector | Research Tools | Random points, I am able to create a random point file that is based on a column in the input Shapefile. When I examine
Processing | History and log, I am unable to find the python equivalent command to automate this command.
There's a similar algorithm under the Processing Toolbox called "Random points inside polygons (variable)", but this plugin appears to be slightly different than its GUI counterpart (e.g., it contains an option to input a minimum distance between points). More importantly, this version of the tool does NOT work with the very same shapefiles that work when using the GUI version of the random point tool mentioned above.
How I can call the GUI version of the "Random Points" tool via the modeller and/or Python?
