I am trying to perform a simple spatial join (adding polygon data to points) in QGIS 1.8:
- target vector: points
- join vector: polygons
- take attributes of first located feature
- keep all records
When I click on OK, the progress bar goes up to 15%, then about 30 seconds later I get the (Not Responding) notice on the dialog box. I found a report of this on the QGIS bug reporting list, but never saw any mention of a resolution. Also, I have run the geometry validation tool on my shapefiles, and all seems fine.
Any ideas on what could be doing this, and more importantly, a fix or workaround?
Thanks also for all of your great posts...
