The Transectizer plugin does not work for the new QGIS version. Any idea how to make it work?

or please suggest me is there any other alternative for it?

  • You can't make it work without the author (or someone else via a fork) updating the plugin to use the new QGIS 3 API. I don't know about alternatives.

Uday. I'm the author of Transectizer plugin. I'm sorry you are not able tu use it in QGIS 3 but I haven't had time to upgrade the plugin, despite I've started some time ago. So I can't help you much right now.

Just in case you're in a hurry, what I can suggest you is to check the source code and use the relevant parts of it to create your transects by mean of a python script, creating a CSV file and importing it into QGIS (or creating a shapefile directly, etc)

The relevant functions inside transectizer.py are newTransect and vinc_pt, which is the one where the real magic is done.

Hope it helps

All the best


  • Jorge, Thanks for your prompt reply. I will check out the source code.
