I'm builing a webapp for which I need to get some GIS work. I have a csv file containing data from a city, split by district, with the following relevant elements:

lat, long, geoJson(multipolygon for each district)

What I'd like to do is to split the map into X equidistant regions. I need to do this in order to "rank" each region according to different properties.

I'm using qgis and I tried finding a solution with no success, I'm a begginer in GIS but I know how to program, just in case there's code involved in some solution.


To create a grid layer that represents equidistant regions you may use (in QGIS v2.12):

If you want to join other vector data layer attribute info to grid layer you may use:

  • Vector -> Data Management Tools -> Join Attributes by Location

  • I tried following the steps but I didn't find a field on which I could select the amount of subregions to get. I'd like to split each regions in five subregions initially. – Rod0n Mar 8 '16 at 19:44
