I have a point data set containing crop type and a polygon data set regarding land parcels. I want to assess the point data integrity and ensure there is only one point, and no more in each polygon.
How do I do this?
I am using ArcGIS.

Using QGIS, you may run the Join attributes by location algorithm from the Processing Toolbox and set these parameters:
The algorithm will return a new point layer that stores some statistics and a new field (named
"COUNT") containing the number of polygon features intersected by each point feature: in this way, you should easily accomplish your task.
