I am hoping to get some ideas about useful ways to simplify adding vector layers with common attributes, particularly for non-GIS users (i am a borderline non-GIS user) in QGIS Las Palmas.
Generally speaking the group that I deal with know how to add vector layers and draw up polygons of sample sites. However I find that they don't tend to add the attributes required when adding polygons to the model (both in terminology or the right attributes).
The attributes feed into a table in the composer manager , which is used to display site information on published maps. If they don't do this I have to go and make amends, however we have around 50 sample sites going in at one time.
Ideally when they add a vector layer , I would like this to display a fixed set of fields to enter, so that we have common information for each sample site polygon.
I am wondering whether there is either a way to
- add layers from a "template"
- an existing plugin that could do this
- whether I should consider coding something?
