The country shapefile is extremely simplistic--the only information it contains are values for the food security index (values 1-5). Because of this, I am unable to perform any kind of spatial join.
I want to single out WHICH points exist in each different value, so I don't think point-in-polygon analysis is sufficient (as far as I can tell, this only gives me certain counts, not which points fall in each polygon).
What I've managed to do is select each food security value from the attribute table and then manually clip the point locations to each one. This is a bit clunky though, as I'm looking to do this for many countries. Is there a tool to achieve this more quickly?
