I have the following layers in QGIS:

  • a polygon layer made up of all the zip-code areas in Germany
  • a layer displaying all the electricity grid nodes in the country.

In a previous step, I created a distance matrix to connect all zip-codes (or their centroids to be more precise) to their closest grid node.

Is there a way to combine all those polygons belonging to a single grid node (nearest point in the distance matrix) into one?

The result would be the area every single grid node is covering.

    You already did most of the work. Just ensure to assign a unique attribute of the closest node to the polygons. Then dissolve or merge them by this attribute.
