I need to edit line features in QGIS 3.4.4. I have more than 1000 line features that I want to first merge and then split. The line features describe roads in useless intervals, my goal is to highlight specific parts of the roads after set intervals.
I want to do the following:
- Merge connecting lines into a single feature of the whole road. If there is no easy solution I might have to select and merge them by hand.
- Split the lines up into parts after set distances, e.g. first after 5 kilometers, next after 1.2 kilometers etc.
I already tried the v.split script, but I only manage to split the line into equal parts. The best solution for splitting would look something like this in ArcGIS:
I only work in QGIS however.
