I downloaded the point sampling tool for QGIS and I'm trying to run it. A few days ago it worked fine, but now it gives the following error:

An error has occured while executing Python code:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "C:...pointsamplingtool \doPointSamplingTool.py", line 262, in accept


File "C:....pointsamplingtool\doPointSamplingTool.py", line 315, in sampling

   if pointGeom.wkbType() == QGis.WKBMultiPoint:

AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'wkbType'

Python version: 2.7.5 (default, May 15 2013, 22:44:16) [MSC v.1500 64 bit (AMD64)]

QGIS version: 2.10.1-Pisa Pisa, d20c5b7

Does anybody know how to fix it?

  • What are your points stored as? Data type? There is something wrong with them. Commented Jan 3, 2018 at 10:29

I had the same I was trying to get point sample working in data extracted from CSV file and raster file Solved by:

Saving the data from CSV file as shapefile then create the point sampling against the shapefile and the raster data and it worked fine .

hope this help u :)


This looks like a bug in the plugin. I would suggest to open an issue report. Please note that gis.se is not a bugtracker and it is unlikely that this post here will help to fix this issue.

For further possibilities to proceed, please have a look at this answer.

  • Thanks - was hoping that somebody else would have had the problem and know how to fix it.
