- a vector layer with a number of points which correspond to magnetic targets
- axis retrieved from AutoCAD
The task is to project the points on the axis and then calculate the distance of each projected point from the start of the axis. Ideally, I would like the calculated distance to be on the same table as the points so I can know which point each distance refers to.
Moreover, it would be nice to know the perpendicular distance of each point from the reference axis. A picture of the above problem is also presented below.
