Processing - Geodetic Distance

Added by Antonio Locandro over 8 years ago. Updated over 6 years ago.

Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:18692


If I use the field calculator in Attribute of layer and Enable on the fly CRS transformation for project if I use $length I get the geodetic distance using the Vincenty implementation in meters, I see no way of doing this within Processing, thus I need to split my workflow in two parts

It would be nice if there was a way to calculate geodetic distance in model builder

Update: I can find the distance using advanced field calculator, but it would be nice if using $length would return meters instead of degrees if the Project CRS transformation is enabled, maybe a check to detect it could be used
