I'm sorry if this question is badly framed, I only started with GIS and QGIS 2 days ago so I don't know any terminology yet - I'll try to explain as best I can.
I have 2 layers in QGIS (1.8, on Win7), one with geological information, and the other with the state boundaries.
I want to get out a report which tells me the composition of each state, i.e. a table of the form:
State name Rock type 1 Rock type 2 State1 32 % 68 % State2 5 % 95 %
I guess this is a pretty basic thing to want to do, but I'm having trouble finding how on my own because I don't know what to search for.
Sorry if bad question, thanks for any help.
