I'm new here in QGIS.

I have a shapefile layer composed of polygons, that represents the rooftop buildings of my case of study. I'd like to "exctract" every single building from my shapefile layer in order to create a standalone vector of every single building. Is there a simple way to do it?

You can use the "Split vector layer" processing algorithm https://docs.qgis.org/3.22/en/docs/user_manual/processing_algs/qgis/vectorgeneral.html#qgissplitvectorlayer

  • Thank you. It did work!
