Detecting geometry change between two line layers in QGIS

by rspencer38   Last Updated January 11, 2019 10:22 AM

Looking to find a method of simply detecting if the geometry between two layers (line) has been altered.

I have two layers of the exact same features but I suspect there is a difference in some of geometry between the two. Is there a way to simply detect change between the two layers? I'm not interested in the attribute change; I simply want to see the areas where there is a difference between the two layers.

Just to sum up all methods that were suggested in comments

  1. Vector -> Geoprocessing Tools -> Symmetrical difference @Germán Carrillo. The same result can be achieved with SAGA GIS Symmetrical Difference Module
  2. Vector -> Geoprocessing Tools -> Difference @rkm. The same result can be achieved with SAGA GIS Difference Module.
