  • Have you tried a GIS with topology e.g. GRASS? v.clean command can do it, use tool=break,rmdangle and set a reasonable threshold.

1 Answer 1


If you are using QGIS 2.18 you can use two tools

1) v.clean

2) Split Line with line in QGIS Toolbox

Using these two tool you can split the lines where they intersect. You can also run these tool on selected records only as well.
