I have received some remote sensing and shapefiles and other data. And I want to import them to view in QGIS.
Given that each kind of data has multiple file type extensions associated with it, how do I know which one of the many I should be importing into QGIS?
For example, there is satellite remote-sensing data, and it has 5 different files:
im.j2w im.jp2 im.prj im.tab im.txg
Which of these should I drag and drop into QGIS?
Same thing with a tif:
DSM.tif.aux.xml DSM.tfw DSM.tif
clip.cpg clip.dbf clip.prj clip.sbn clip.sbx clip.shp clip.shp.xml clip.shx
If I drag and drop all of shapefile associated files for example, QGIS errors on some of them saying it cannot load them. In the end, it was able to load the
.dbf, .shp, .shx files. But all of them look the same when displayed in QGIS! So it seems like I shouldn't need to import all 3 of them. But it's unclear which individual one I should import.
