I know there have been tons of posts on this, but none of them seem to answer my question/situation. I have a layer of many polygons (building footprints) and I'm trying to join a of points (less points than polygons). I am trying to join the attributes from each point to the closest polygon. When I use NNJoin, I get a resulting layer where each polygon has assumed the attributes of the closest point to it. Similar posts are here and here. In many instances, my points are not within a defined polygon. Maybe I'm missing some settings in NNJoin?
NNJoin interface here; 'Building Outlines' is my polygon layer and 'Building Properties' is my point layer. Do I have the settings correct?
Am I right in understanding that if I check 'Approximate geometries by centroid' it will find distance based on centroid, but if I leave it unchecked it will base it on closest line of the polygon?
