Feature request #14969

It would be useful if QGIS gave a warning that there are null or EMPTY geometries when importing data.

Based on this question on GIS StackExchange.


It looks as if some plugins assume that all features have geometries. Which is a reasonable assumption, but the error message could be confusing :)

It would just need to be a warning / info; it shouldn't prevent the import from working. Maybe a QgsMessageBar warning on import? Maybe something like...

"Some of the features do not have geometry. This might cause problems for some plugins"

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I disagree - null geometries are quite common in some fields, and the correct solution is for the plugin to be fixed to handle them.
