I have two shapefiles: one point and one polygon. The point shapefile have five attributes that describe the points. The polygon shapefile have one attribute: name of the polygon.
I am a beginner to QGIS. I know how to bring both shapefiles up on the screen. Here's where I need help. I need to add a column in the point shapefile, and update the records of the name of the polygon that particular point happens to reside in. This way, I can detach the point shapefile and send it somewhere else without giving up the polygon shapefile.
Can this be done? if so, how? Thanks.
