I am trying to create a custom shapefile consisted of 16 waypoints orientated around an origin point. the 16 waypoints are to be 2m apart from the central waypoint (like an axis, with 0 being the central waypoint and 4 waypoints in each N,S,E,W direction). I have used geopackage to create this however i need to ensure they are exactly 2m apart. Is there a way to ensure this.
I also want to be able to use this shapefile in different locations, however do not want to drag the shapefile over long distances.
Is there a way to create this shapefile?
I can elaborate if needed - imagine placing an axis over your house and every 2m represents a sample point. Then you want to place the same axis over your friends house which is ~1,000km away.
Can we zoom to the friends house and snap the axis on easily?
