Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:16783


A typical infrastructure network (water, gas, electricity, telecom) usually has:
  • nodes (pump station, substation, hub)
  • lines (pipes, cables)
Please add functionality to logically relate these objects
  • node type
  • start node of line (from)
  • end node of line (to)
help editing:
  • when a node is moved (digitization), the connected lines shall be shifted
  • provide analysis (near, connected to)

Could you please open a ticket for each issue.

  • Network analysis

Hi Timmie,

I would suggest to develop such functionality in separate plugins/applications - only generally useful stuff should go into QGIS core.

For waste-water there is an ongoing project in Switzerland (parts of it will go into QGIS core (the database relations stuff) - parts of it will be handled in the Postgis database (like the maintainance of from/to relations that you demand) - and parts of the logic is in a python plugin.

There will also be efforts around water and gaz in Switzerland.

If you want to join these efforts, let me know.
