I am using QGIS 2.18.
Can anyone explain how to cut the area of an overlapping shapefile?
For example I have a field with a track running through it. The field is one shapefile (a polygon) and the track is another shapefile (polygon) overlaying the field.
How can I cut the track from the field to show the background mapping data, (without manually having to cut around the shape)?
I assume there is a processing tool to do this but I can't get a tool to do what I want.
I essentially want an automatic cutting tool that will cut one shapefile based on another shapefile's outline.
