I've downloaded some data sets (from http://sis.agr.gc.ca/cansis/nsdb/dss/v3/index.html) that each contain:
- Shapefiles (SHP, DBF, SHX)
- XML files associated with the SHP
- DBF files of metadata
- XML files associated with the DBF
In this case, the SHP files define geographic areas, and the metadata contain soil and other attributes.
How do I import the DBF information so that I can see specific attributes pertaining to a given feature?
I have used QGIS (2.16.1) to load the SHP file, and the Metatools plugin (0.3.1) to load the metadata.
