I have 2 shapefiles, one multi polygon shapefile (a) and and one multi-point shapefile (b).
I would like to extract the polygons from (a) only where they contain points from (b). I can do this pretty easily using the
Vector Selection --->
Extract by Location in
QGIS; however the attribute table from the output multi-polygon shapefile (c) only contains the information of the extracted polygons from (a) whereas I need them to retain the data from (b) as well.
Is there any way to create the output (c) but keep the information from both (a) and (b)?
I can add a step by using
Vector General ---->
Join Attributes By Location, however the attribute table from this output (d) has duplicates which I'd like to avoid. If, on the other hand, this added step is
Vector General --->
Join Attributes By Location (Summary) there are no duplications in (d) but the new attribute table contains numerous summary statistics which I do not need, nor want.
