I'm digitizing some of our sewer assets and need to be able to measure distance and create points.
So, for instance, I have a sewer main that is 65m long. I need to mark a point at the 32m mark, then a further 6.2m.
The main is represented by a polyline and already exists. I want to be able to create the points in a separate layer. In my innocence, I'm imagining something like a ruler tool where I can click to drop a point at the distance locations I need.
I have read the examples where a regular pattern of points are created, and have tried using the v.to.points tool in GRASS, but none of these give me the result that I want.
I can do something like this in MapInfo, but would like to see if I can do it in QGIS.
