I have a shapefile with lines (these are administrative borders in India). I want to split each line into a max length of 10 kilometres.
I am using the GRASS tool, v.split.length, following advice here: How to split a line into a specific number of parts?
However, I get a really large number of segments; whatever change I make to the 'Maximum segment length' option seems to have no effect.
One mistake could be using the wrong projection: I was earlier using the coordinate projection EPSG::4326. Is that it, if I use an equidistant projection for India, will that allow me to create 10 km segments?
Which equidistant projection can I use?
