I have some questions about simulator moving on the QGIS map. On a vector layer, selected some points to make a polyline, and, let a Vertex Marker moving along the polyline.

Now, I want to moving the marker smoothly between two points (means I need calculate points between two selected points), and, the marker's moving speed can be special, e.g: 5 km/h. Is there any way to make these functions?

Thank You very much!

  • Welcome to SE.GIS forum. Which version of QGIS you are using ? – Sunil Jul 22 '13 at 7:20

Check MMQGIS Animate tools. They seem to be doing something very similar to what you are looking for: interpolation of point positions between start and end point. If you have some programming skills, this would be a good point to start developing a solution specific to your requirements.

  • Yes, I a C++ programmer. I'll try the MMQGIS. Thank you for your reply. – TingSky Jul 22 '13 at 10:00
