- Adding Attribute data to shapefile? 10 answers
I have a shapefile made of buildings, each one of them characterized by some attributes. I need to add some attributes contained in a .dbf file. The two files have in common the attribute "ID", so the information contained in the .dbf could be related to the building having the same ID. Currently I do this through OPENOFFICE, but I have a problem, because not all the buildings contained in the shapefile have the properties defined in the .dbf.
