Is there a possibility to get the centroid of each line? When using VECTOR ==> ANALYSIS TOOLS ==> MEAN COORDINATS I always get a centroid of the whole lines. What I need is the centroid of each line without having to select individual lines.


In tool mean coordinate/s from geoprocessing toolbox use Unique ID field. enter image description here

In the Field Calculator, create a new String field and set the length to be something high like 99. Then use the expression:

geomToWKT( centroid($geometry) )

This should give centroid coordinate values like Point (-4.28930643 55.86506837).
