Using QGIS 2.8.2, I have the following layer:

enter image description here

I'd like to remove the white strip and have each end closed off. Looking more closely, I need to join the nodes at each end as shown in red pen, such that the white area is now shaded yellow like the rest:

I am at a total loss on this one. I've tried the various geometry tools, but nothing seems to work. I think this should be easily done?

  • Did you try the node tool to move the nodes together? – underdark Apr 2 '16 at 21:12
  • Yes, but the nodes don't join/merge. In doing that, it ultimately just shrinks the width of the white strip, but still leaves two lines across. – DrDunkenstein Apr 2 '16 at 21:16
  • @underdark, to be more specific, I want to merge the two circled nodes and remove the connection to the node(s) at the other end. – DrDunkenstein Apr 2 '16 at 21:24
  • So you want to merge the polygons? Or is it actually the same polygon? – underdark Apr 2 '16 at 21:26
  • @underdark, it's the same polygon. For context, the white space is water that joins two lakes, making the rest land. I'm trying to delete the river – DrDunkenstein Apr 2 '16 at 21:30
