Is there something out there for QGIS that is similar to the Append Tool in ArcMap?
Reason I am looking: I am currently working on a storm drainage project that involves GPSing Storm drain lids. My issue is when I capture the points with the GPS unit, and then bring them into the office. The GPS unit produces a CSV file for me to import into QGIS. It gives the CSV file with generic header names ( field1, field2, field3..etc) This is fine, until I try to copy it into the working shapefile that has all the other storm drains. The beautiful thing with Arcmap's append tool was that I could map each field from my csv file to the destination shape file...ex... "field1" from csv is equal to "Elevation" field in my shapefile. And thus update my shapefile with the newest points.
