This question already has an answer here:
I am new to QGIS. I am looking for any plugin or any manual method in QGIS for finding minimum distance (perpendicular distance) from a point which is part of one shapefile to nearest line among many lines which is part of another shapefile. MMQGIS is not useful for this purpose. I used v.net.connect command.
I am getting minimum distance (perpendicular distance) from points which are part of one shapefile to nearest line among many lines which is part of another shapefile, but there is one problem. I am not identifying from the attribute table which distance belongs to which line.
In the attribute table, there 32 distance values for 32 points w.r.t nearest line. Is there any method to identify which distance value is belong to which nearest line? I want to identify the line identity in attribute table w.r.t distance value
