Finds geodetic distance along and to the side of a line

Measures geodetic distance along a line, i.e. the chainage (in KP - kilometer points) and offset.
Clicking copies the information to the clipboard. Can generate chainage points, geodetic and cartesian.
Can also make a copy of a point layer with new attributes for KP and DOL, Lat and Lon.
Please note: the plugin only accepts layers with the same CRS. It takes the first feature in the line layer -
it is best if the line layer has only one feature, but the plugin will issue a warning if not the case.
Code borrowed from the Lat Lon Tools, Shapetools and Closest Point plugins.
Reliable results only with projected layers!
