I have an attribute table with a lot of fields that I added for data collected via gps. I would now like to duplicate that attribute table for use with another layer, based on different data.

Is there a simple way to do this other than manually?

I am using QGIS.

You can create data relation or join tables by unique field (point id or similar). Join can be exported as new vector file:

  1. Join attribute tables (layer properties --> Join) see: Another Way to Join a New Column to a DBF if OpenOffice is Giving a "Longer Than the Number of Digits Allowed" Error?

  2. Data Relations (Project --> Project Properties --> Relations) see: Editing feature attribute values in joined non-spatial table in QGIS?
