I am attempting to draw an electricity grid (poles and cables) using QGIS. I need to ensure that each pole is a maximum of 50m apart, and then I need to measure the total length of the grid and identify the precise location of all poles. See my screenshot below for what it looks like - the yellow lines are electricity cable, the red dots are poles, and blue dots are houses.
I'm using the Advanced Digitizing tool to limit my line segments to be <=50m and Vector > Geometry > Extract Vertices to generate the pole locations. However, when I look at the attribute table for my poles shapefile, there are no GPS coordinates attached to my red dots (poles). This information is critical. How can I get GPS coordinates (ideally lat/long in decimal degrees) for the poles?
Is there a better way for me to do this? I need to draw a utility grid where no line segment exceeds 50m, and I need precise GPS coordinates of each pole.
