I have a shapefile with track lines and I need to generate random points from each 1 km of every line. There is a function in QGIS Random points but it offers to generate random points only inside a polygon. Any ideas for a specific plug-in or another solution?
What about from the processing toolbox where there's a tool called Random points along line.
You can also set the minimum distance.
First off all you have to make sure that your Project and data CRS are in the Projected References. then go to:
Qgis > Processing > Toolbox > (type) Random points along line... You´ll see it in Vector creation tools > right clik and execute...
Number points = If you put 1 you´ll only see one point, Minimum distance = In meters (E.g. 1000).
