QGIS 2.18.20 working in CRS: WGS 84/UTM Zone 35S (EPSG:32735 OTF), with shapefiles of map features (roads, river, point water sources) reprojected from WGS84 EPSG:4326.
All shapefiles have been reprojected (in order to be able to work in metres not degrees). Map features originally from GPS source, input to qgis using lat/long coordinates.
I'm trying to run Distance To Nearest Hub analysis for animal sightings (300+ points in one layer) to the various features in my map (see list above). The analysis works well for the point data (e.g. Source= sighting point, Hub= water source point) but not for the line files (road, river, fence).
I've tried adding geom info to the line shapefiles but they just add in length and the 'Distance to nearest Hub' analysis ends the same.
