Pic. 2.11. Generated grid

The tool generates a grid within the boundaries of features of a vector layer. The grid size is set in meters. Features can be anywhere in the world.

Inputs:

  • A multipolygon layer with one or more features. It should be GeoPackage

  • Grid step in meters

  • Mode: points (points), rect (squares)

  • Algorithm for cropping the grid along the borders: all (leave all the squares in extent), touches (leave all the squares touching features), intersection (crop the squares along the borders of the features)
