Bug report #8555
ftools 0.6.2 Intersection of points with polygons fails to produce output
|Affected QGIS version:||1.8.0||Regression?:|
|Operating System:||Easy fix?:|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||invalid|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||17305|
Intersecting a points layer with a polygon layer does not produce any output.
line 978 of doGeoprocessing.py reads as:
if int_geom.wkbType() in gList:
if this is changed to:
if int_geom.wkbType() == 1 or int_geom.wkbType() in gList:
expected results are obtained.
The other correction would be alteration of ftools_utils getGeomType function to produce output if a point file type is provided.

Hi, this has been fixed in master (almost 2.0 version) a long time ago, getGeomType checks the wkbType == 1 
You can use the intersect tool even with point layer.
Thanks anyway for the report !

Thanks for letting me know Salvatore. It is too bad however that for users not using the master, these bugs persist. Is there plans to backport some fixes?
sorry no backports, but qgis 2.0 is going to be released in the next days.
