I have around 8000 point features that require snapping to the nearest line vertex. Please see below image for reference. I would like to do this in one go if possible.

Is there a tool in QGIS 3 that I can use to do this?

All the points are within around 1 meter of where they should be. I have tried using V.edit and V.clean but because I don't know what parameters need filling in/selected/checked boxes/etc. It never seems to work.

  • Did you try the "snap" cleaning tool in v.clean? You can (and should) also set the snap tolerance using one of the options in the dialog box. (For QGIS3, there is an option called "v.in.ogr snap tolerance" for me.) If you search "snap" in QGIS processing toolbox, you'll also find a "Snap geometries to layer" tool, which should also accomplish your goal. – Jon Dec 5 '18 at 14:59
  • Thanks @Jon i found the "Snap geometries to layer" worked perfectly and was easy to use. A quick review of the data and all seems fine. Thank you for your prompt response much appreciated. – NPT_Rich Dec 5 '18 at 15:40

Try the "Snap geometries to layer" tool, found in the QGIS processing toolbox.
