Split datasets by polygons

Split datasets by polygons

Splits the input dataset/file into as many output layers as is the number of polygons in the vector layer used for split.



Description

The tool splits the input dataset/file into as many output layers as is the number of polygons in the vector layer used for split. Such a layer will be produced also for each individual layer in the input datasets. You can set the areas by which the input data will be splitted either by uploading a vector layer or by drawing polygons on the map.

Example: If you upload a dataset with 3 layers (e.g. point, line and polygon layer) and split it by a layer containing 3 polygons, as a result there will be 9 layers - 3 point layers, 3 line layers and 3 polygon layers.

Parameters

  • Input vector dataset(s) to be split - Requires vector dataset(s) that will be split according to specific polygons.
  • Split by (vector polygon data) - Requires polygon vector data by which the input dataset(s) will be split. It’s also possible to draw the polygon(s) on a map.
  • Split by specific layer - Select the specific layer by which the input dataset(s) will be split.
  • Output format - Select vector file format for data to download.

Result

Vector data splitted by provided polygon layer into several datasets.
