  • Welcome to gis.stackexchange! Please note that a good question should mention what you have tried so far and exactly where you are having problems. "Can I have code" questions are generally not well received.

  • Thank you for your kind suggestion. I googled and read the api. I guess QgsDistanceArea can be used but I'm not sure how to use it. I also found that GRASS plugin can be used to find the distance but I don't want to use the plugin if there are another solution.
