I have a route network and want to add every 10 meters a point with the 'QChainage' plugin.

I first used 'join multiple lines' to make the route a single section. Then I transferred my CRS to my corresponding UTM-zone, to work with meters.

Changed 'Chainage every ' to 10 Meters and pressed Ok.

As result, however, I get only one Point.

The 'Devide Feature into x Parts' under 'Advanced ' seems to work, but it is not what I am looking for, since I want specific Distance.

Does anybody have an Idea what I can do, to make it work? I searched similar question regarding my task, but the answer always suggests to use the plugin, which I can't get to work.


QGIS 3.0 has the tool Points along geometry which creates points at specified distance along a line, with distance along the line as an attribute. Here's the tool's description:

Creates points at regular intervals along line or polygon geometries. Created points will have new attributes added for the distance along the geometry and the angle of the line at the point. An optional start and end offset can be specified, which controls how far from the start and end of the geometry the points should be created.

QGIS 2.18 has the tool, Create points along lines. This tool has no description, but the name and parameters are similar, so it seems likely that it does the same thing.
