I have a point shapefile of villages where data was collected in Northern Kenya. I created a buffer around those villages.
The second vector layer contains polygons defining areas according to vegetation type. So for example, a forest might be surrounded by a narrow ring of woodland in an area which is mainly grassland. I'm trying to obtain a percentage of each vegetation type within the buffer per village.
I'm using QGIS 1.7
Any help would be very much appreciated, as I've been stuck for a few days now (and a total newbie to the GIS field)
