I am under the 2154 CRS (RGF 93). I want to calculate the distance in meters between two point knowing their coordinates.
Let's consider two points : A(474828.85, 6756169.31) and B(874895.75, 6756159.5) If I measure the distance manualy I get 69.6m.
I want to get this result through the Python console. I have read two ways of doing it: QGIS Python Distance between points
Nevertheless, it fails on my case.
>>>point1 = QgsPoint(474828.85, 6756169.31) >>>point2 = QgsPoint(874895.75, 6756159.5) >>>distance = QgsDistanceArea()
This is ok, but the next line sends an error message:
>>>m = distance.measureLine(point1, point2) Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\PROGRA~1\QGIS3~1.4\apps\Python37\lib\code.py", line 90, in runcode exec(code, self.locals) File "<input>", line 1, in <module> TypeError: QgsDistanceArea.measureLine(): arguments did not match any overloaded call: overload 1: argument 1 has unexpected type 'QgsPoint' overload 2: argument 1 has unexpected type 'QgsPoint'
