I have a shapefile layer with a set of points.

enter image description here

I would like to enclose them (or turn them) into the polygon (with the line in the middle).

I tried this:

Converting cluster of Points to Polygons using QGIS?

Creating Minimum Convex Polygon - Home Range from Points in QGIS

which led me to the Convex Hull tool.

Unfortunately, it looks like, that this operation can be applied to the cluster of points instead of single located points.

Instead of using the Convex hull tool, use the Minimum bounding geometry tool by specifying the desired type of geometry output as shown in the image below.

  • It appears to be valid, however once I set the minimum bounding geometry and selecting Node (one of the column apart from Lot & Lan) I am getting an empty layer. I found the similar issue here: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/283111/… which hasn't been resolved really. Any ideas about how to make the layer visible?

  • If I choose Convex hull, then I am getting: Feature could not be written to Bounding_geometry_40560c1f_a69b_4202_905d_4edcec325f04

  • If the layer is not visible, there was an error during processing. Can you try with another layer of points ? Dec 23 '19 at 12:39
  • I have this one only populated so far. I can add it again.

  • Not needed mate. I found the mistake. I should have left the field point empty! Thank you for your help!
