I have around 750 seperate shapefiles of species distribution data. For each species i want to calculate the number of atlas squares it occures in. Doing this for each object seperately seems a tedious job and i think there might be a faster way of doing this.
So, Herniaria occurs in three atlas squares (or circles in this case). Hydrochaeris in 19 and Holcus in a whole lot. I have around 750 of these maps and i dont want to select each of these seperate, and go to the attribute table to calculate the number of rows (which is the number of atlas squares). I am trying for a while now, but cant find a way to do this for all the maps at once.
In the best scenario, the end product would be a list/CSV/XLS/TXT file with one column for the species and one column for the abundance (i.e. the number of atlas squares).
I hope this is possible.
