My shapefile is a single MultiPolygon (1 feature) which has some holes, within which there exist multiple parts of this polygon, remnants of vectorization. I need to eliminate those small as shown on the screenshots and cannot find a way to do so.

I work in QGIS.

  • Dissolve, then extract only the large polygon to a new file - or select the large one, reverse selection and delete all the small polygons.

  • Thanks, but Dissolve does not work as the small areas are part of the only one and single feature within the Polygon (MultiPolygon)

    Sorry, I meant "multipart to single" - as in, dissolve the multipartthingy into lots of singleparts ;-)

  • Ok, the native:multiparttosingleparts works as a charm to break it down. Then the rest is part of a tailor made pipeline to the needs :) Thanks!
