I am having trouble clipping a point shapefile to with a polygon shapefile in QGIS 2.18.2. I was able to clip a point shapefile from a different source successfully (using the same polygon) so I think the point shapefile is the issue. I also tried the intersect tool but both provided the same message in the log:
"Algorithm clip starting...
1004 See log for details"
The presumably problematic data was downloaded as a KML file from:
One difference that is apparent between the two shapefiles is that the one that works has a normal, complete attribute table, while the problem shapefile has an attribute table that looks like this:
If this is the reason I can't clip this shapefile, is there is a way to get the KML file to show the attribute data properly?
If this issue can't be resolved for this file, the data can also be provided as a tab separated list, however, I am having issues getting this into a usable form (or I wouldn't be asking this question), so I will post a separate question to resolve that problem if necessary.
