I'm not sure if this is possible but would save me hours of work.
I have a layer which consists of polylines. Most of those polylines bound areas; houses, roads, etc.
Currently I am required to colour each of those areas to define what they represent in the real world. My current technique is drawing a region in a new layer; as you can guess this takes a lot of time, especially for complicated areas.
Is there a feature in QGIS whereby I can create a new region on a layer by selecting a point within the bounded area and it creates the region shape?
I have tried converting the whole layer of polylines to regions but the results were not as desired, there are some lines that are not bound to an area (partial fences, walls etc) so the results look odd.
It would be something similar to 'hatching' in an CAD program, to fill the area bound by lines. Only I want to do this to create the region.
