I have this big land use map. I extracted shapes associated with mountains so that I can improve the classification (for example, I corrected clouds in the mountains to be forest, among other things). Now I want to flatten the two layers with the extracted layer over-writing the info on the original map. I tried union, merge and other things, but the info I want overwritten is still there (ex. the clouds are still there).
I checked for instance the result of the union and I saw that the all the data columns of both shapefiles were appended together. The effect I want is for the data of the top layer to replace the data of the lower layer. In Photoshop, this is just basic flattening (i.e. pixel value of higher layer replaces all pixel values of underlying layers).
