I have a shapefile which contains the approximate boundaries for sites that are being worked on (thousands) in polygons, each with a reference number and additional detail in the attribution.
I have a collection of additional shapefiles with the detailed boundaries, the reference number but not accompanying information. These each have hundreds of boundaries.
What would be the best / quickest way to update the mastershapefile with the detailed boundaries, still maintaining the additional detail in the attribution contained in the master shapefile?
I could work through each shape manually, but can't get my head around how to run this as a batch.
