USING QGIS 2.18.19 with python console (planning to upgrade to the newest QGIS after this piece of programming)
I am struggling with finding the correct pyQGIS coding for this.
I have a shapefile containing points marking shelteredHousing and another shapefile containing groceryStores (points).
I wish to identify the nearest grocery store to each fox den point and calculate the distance between them.
This is as far as I have managed so far (and it's taken a long time)
import qgis.utils layers = iface.mapCanvas().layers() storesData=0 housingData=0 for layer in layers: layerName = layer.name() if layerName == "grocerystores": groceryStoresLayer = layer storesData=1 if layerName == "shelteredhousing": shelteredHousingLayer = layer housingData=1 if storesData==0: DestinationLayer=iface.addVectorLayer("C:\\destinationpathway\\grocerystores.shp", "groceryStoresLayer", "ogr") if housingData==0: DestinationLayer=iface.addVectorLayer("C:\\destinationpathway"\\shelteredhousing.shp, "shelteredHousingLayer", "ogr") res = shelteredHousingLayer.dataProvider()
I think I need to have in the statement "from math import sqrt" and then perform a square route on the different layers, but I really wanted to see if someone could give a little help or nudge in the right direction.
Effectively I'm pretty sure I want to do the distance matrix on the data, but I don't know how to plug that in.
