I'm working on a project where I need to snap an existing line layer to a different line layer. These lines represent streams and rivers. I'm working within QGIS Maderia 3.4 LTR.
I've tried using the
"Snap Geometries to layer" tool but it doesn't appear to snap the input layer to the reference layer, the input layer continues to stay in the same position, no matter the tolerance I put in (10ft, 15ft, 100ft, 500ft).
I've figured out that I can use the vertex tool, enable snapping and manually do a lot of it. With the snapping and the vertex tool, I've played around with the type also (vertex, vertex and segment, segment).
With the manual snapping, I've been having particular trouble with the confluences, where one stream merges with another. This is an area of the snapping that especially needs to be done precisely. If this process does need to happen manually, any hints for that particular task?
The dataset is large and I was hoping to find a less tedious process. Especially since I need to be able to snap or create a snapped layer to within a 15ft precision level (currently with the manual snaps, I've been using a buffer as a guide).
