I want to perform a selection by locatin in QGIS using "intersection." However, I want to add a distance parameter so that it disregards polygons that are exactly adjacent and retrieves only those that are at a certain distance.
To illustrate my example: I have a layer of communes of France (red shapefile). I want to select only the communes (green layer) that are within the shape of the Languedoc-Roussillon region (black outline).
If I perform a selection by location using intersection in QGIS, it will select all communes within (green layer), but also those that touch the boundary (yellow communes).
In ArcGIS, we can specify a distance parameter in the selection. In the case of my example above, I set it to "-10" to exclude the communes that touch the boundary. (Sorry, the menu is in French)
In QGIS, there is no way to add a parameter in the selection menu...
