In QGIS 2.0.1, is there a way to automatically slice up one shapefile and export it as multiple files using polygons defined in another shapefile?
I have a detailed shapefile that categorizes the land ownership of the entire state of Arizona. (It's called "az_surf_mgmt" on this page.) As a whole, it far exceeds the size and complexity restrictions of KML support in Google Maps. So I want to take that file and chop it into individual counties, or perhaps game management units, as defined by another shapefile obtained elsewhere.
I found an almost identical question, but the accepted answer does not address how this might be done automatically. If the answer requires that I learn Python and PyQGIS, so be it.
