I have two shapefiles. One is a point layer of trees, the other is a polygon of cadastral boundaries. I want to spatially join these two layers so that I get the information, on which cadastral boundary the tree lies. For every point of trees, I want to add the information of the boundaries to the trees in the query.

I have seen something similar here, but I'm not a big SQL expert :-)

Spatial query, embed in layer or project

Perhaps somebody can help me out.


You need to use Join attributes by location tool to join the point data with the polygon boundary data that you have.

You can find the tool from Vector -> Data Management Tools -> Join attributes by location, as you can see below:
