For the single layer(for example Airport layer) there are many entries in the attribute table.

Can we call single attribute row entry a feature of the Airport Layer?

Can somebody give clear view of layer and feature ?

  • yeah, you should explore the select by expression in the attribute table – Yannick Arthur DOUNGMO Mar 20 at 8:35
  • Or you can simply click on it in the map window. – Erik Mar 20 at 8:36
  • Can you include any code you have tried? Have you taken a look at some examples? – Joseph Mar 20 at 10:31

    You man want to read the introduction to gis on qgis.org. But in short: yes one row relates to one feature. – Andreas Müller Mar 20 at 10:34
  • As per the Tour there should be only one question asked per question. – PolyGeo Mar 22 at 10:05

Yes, a layer is a set of features and each feature correspond to one row in the attribute table.

That being said one feature could be composed of several object (or collection) like in the case of multipoint, multiline or multipolygon. In that case each feature is composed of one or several part but all part are grouped in one feature and have one set of attribute (so one line in the table), you may think of a country composed of several island for exemple.
