How do I create a fishnet shapefile using QGIS?
The equivalent task of "Create Fishnet" in ArcGIS.
Vector grid creation has been incorporated in QGIS for a long time:
Vector -> Research Tools -> Vector Grid
Note that the default grid spacing of
0.0001000000 units of the layer CRS is too small in most cases.
You might want to use
Vector -> Geometry Tools -> Densify Geometries afterwards if you need to reproject the grid to another CRS where the lines should appear bended.
