I have a point layer containing the following data:

enter image description here

I want the following polygon areas to be added to the point attribute table as all the points occur inside the various features of the polygon layer:

enter image description here

There are thousands of points but under 50 features in the polygon layer:

Polygon layer overlaid on point layer - I want both to be one, i.e. each point must have the section's segment code ascribed to it

PLEASE NOTE that I have attempted the following plugins/algorithms:

  • Merge
  • Join attributes by Location
  • Join attributes Table
  • spatialJoin (that uses refFunctions)

Please help!

  • What happened when you used Join attributes by Location? Also, the MMQGIS plugin contains a Spatial Join tool which you could try. – Joseph Apr 26 '16 at 14:12
  • @Joseph the Join attr. by Location delivers NULL cells and remember it asks for algebraic metrics to be computed so categorical data aren't just copied over. I will attempt MMQGIS... – Rion Lerm Apr 28 '16 at 6:17

    @Joseph, MMQGIS worked. Thanks but, pity only a single tool works for this type of join. – Rion Lerm Apr 28 '16 at 6:25
