Essentially I have a shapefile of polylines and wish to create duplicates and based on attribute data.
I have route data for individuals as polylines. Then I have attribute data which tells me the number of people and what are the members of the group. The number of individuals is variable ranging from 1 -10 and I would want to duplicate to create a single line for each individual.
This is to examine footfall. I realise that with a grid I could simply sum the number of members for each polyline togive me footfall. However I wish to examine different members of the group differently and treat their impacts differently, therefore I need single polylines for each member of the group.
A similar question has been asked (below), but this is in ArcGIS and I have only QGIS available.
