I have created a new layer overlaying a map, then chosen the "add feature" tool to add points, which I have named with numbers, representing the location of customers. I need to have the coordinate positions of my points. Where do I find them? I have tried Layer-Open attribute table but this only contains my number-names for my points.
You have to calculate the coordinates, if you want to add them to the attribute table. Otherwise you can use the identify tool to see the coordinates of a single point.
You can use Identity tool to see point's coordinates.
- Select the tool. When you click a point you will see attributes of the point also extra information under Derived section in Identity Results panel.
You can add points' coordinates to attribute table using Field Calculator.
- Click Field Calculator button. A window shows up. In that window, create new field as shown in following image. Use
$xfor X coordinate,
$yfor Y coordinate, seperately.
