I need to plot the distribution of a plant species on a map. I have created a shapefile for the species plots (name of file is PLANT). The coordinate system of this file is WGS84. On the attribute table of this shapefile I put the fields Latitude, Longitude, ID and Type.
I have a georerefenced map of Madeira Island, using the WGS84 coordinate system. What I want to do is using the Madeira Island map as a reference, I want to plot the distribution of a plant species so that when I click a on the map to add a point to the PLANT shapefile, the lat/long coordinates of that point go automatically to the latitude and longitude fields on the PLANT attribute table.
Can anyone tell me how this can be done or reference me to a tutorial that explains how this can be done?
In short, how can I make the latitude and longitude fields of a attribute table be automatically filled when I click with the mouse on a map?
I'm not experienced in using QGIS.
