I have polygon coordinates for complete India at district level and I want to just use 2 or 3 districts out of complete polygon.

For example : I want to just select district Pune and Nasik and need this two polygon coordinates, but there are 100 district polygon boundaries in .shp file.

How to extract only selected district polygon coordinates ?

  • What do you mean by "coordinates"? Do you want to extract those districts into a new file or do you need a plain text list of their coordinates? – bugmenot123 Feb 16 '17 at 7:39
  • @bugmenot123 I want to extract Nasik and Pune district into a new file – Kiran Prajapati Feb 16 '17 at 7:41
  • @bugmenot123, just like filter this two district and that will save in new file, and ones i open that new file it will just show polygon for this two district only – Kiran Prajapati Feb 16 '17 at 7:43
  • @bugmenot123 , but that option I cant click :( , that option is in black color, not possible to click. – Kiran Prajapati Feb 16 '17 at 7:50

You just need to filter the two districts of interest using an expression like this ("District" is the name of the field which stores the strings Nasik and Pune, so adapt it to your case):

enter image description here

Once you have done this, right click on the layer and select "Save As". In the save layer dialog make sure the check box "Save only selected features" is checked.
