I have a points layer and a polyline layer.
The points layer is basically bus stops and the line layer is the road network. The bus stops may or may not fall exactly on the road network layer. I want to create a column in the point layer which contains the ID of the nearest link and also the distance from the link's head node or tail node.
That means I need to find the nearest link wrt each node and also measure the distance of the point on the line from the line's head or tail node.
What tool in QGIS will help me get the above things done?
