I have 5 groups of 4 lines, all the lines in all the data sets are centred around the same point. I need to algorithmically combine these lines into one line that is only the furthest from the point. They overlap in multiple locations.
These lines came from points which came from a CSV file, they were combined using the
'Pointstopath' function in QGIS.
I am very new to GIS in general but have a working knowledge of python. My first thought was to load the CSV files into python pandas and calculate the distance from each point and only keep the furthermost. However, this won't work as the files have different "resolutions".
Am I missing something obvious?
