I am trying to make polygons from a set of boundaries from an SVG file with closed polylines I downloaded off wikipedia.
1) convert SVG to DXF via Inkscape 2) import into QGIS (shows polyline data) 3) Lines > Polygon
somehow the result seems to generate these bad polygons with defects - I attach a screenshot here
I tried re-exporting the file to DXF again, and putting it into a 3d CAD suite (rhino 5). I managed to join the lines without any changes. re-export to DXF, reimport into QGIS, remake polyllines and I get the same result
does anyone have any ideas?
