I want to select all the items within a circular buffer. Inside the buffer are multipolygons and multipoints. See the screenshot i have posted.
You need to select points and polygons separately.
In order to select points:
Vector > Spatial Query*
- In Select Source features from : select your points layer (to be selected)
- Where the features : select
- Reference features of : select your buffers layer
- Click Apply
- Points included in buffers are now selected (you can save this selection as a new layer or apply specific symbology or do anything you want with them...)
Do the same for your polygons layer. If you want to select polygons that are partially included in buffers, you will then choose the Ìntersects
option forWhere the features`option of the plugin.
(*) if not available in your QGIS, install Spatial Query Plugin through
Plugins > Manage and Install Plugins...
