I have an area polygon with rocks on it i want to use difference to map the soft (ground, not rocks) cover. to do that i try using the (ftools) vector>geoprocessing>difference getting an empty difference layer. I tried performing this analysis both on windows and linux using shapefiles and sqlite.
a zipfile containing the data can be downloaded at:https://www.dropbox.com/s/s1lrepa95lwdm9e/stackexchange.zip
I have a few questions: 1. Can anyone tell me why? 2. Where can i find the qgis log so i might be able to figure this out 3. Is there an alternative to ftools to perform such analysis? 4. it seems to me that some of the ftools function dont work for me, does anyone know of a solution for that? 5. might this be somehow encoding related (some of the layers were produced in windows some linux)
OS: windows xp, linux ubuntu 12.04 qgis: 1.8
