QGIS: Split a line at an Interval using Processing Toolbox

  • Software: 3.x
  • OS: Any
  • Updated: August 2021

I have a line that I need to split into equal lengths. In this case the split will be 1000 foot segments. The very first thing you should do is get your data into something measurable like feet or meters. Since I’m in TN and working in EPSG:2274 this will be in feet.

Open your processing tool box and search for Split Lines By Maximum Length

Be sure to put 1000 in the maximum line length. By default you will have a new layer that is created that will have the 1000 foot line segment. It will be called Split. You can save this to a permanent file if you wish
