I have a shapefile with ~110,000 grid cells which I want to convert into the same grid cell sizes as in another shapefile with ~27,000 grid cells? Is there a way to do this in QGIS?

Details about the two shapefiles:

  1. Higher resolution shapefile: ~110,000 rows in attribute table:

  1. Lower resolution shapefile: ~27,000 rows in attribute table:

But both have the same country boundary. - India:

I basically want both to have the same number of rows which in a way means same resolution.

    Shapefile is a vector format. It doesn't really have resolution or cell sizes. Please add a graphic showing what it is that you want done.

    No, the same number of rows doesn't mean the same resolution. And a "graphic", among mapping people, generally means a map, showing both datasets, and how they overlay.

    Try creating a grid with the "resolution" and origin of your finest layer. Then intersect this with your coarse layer, or join by location to get the coarse data to the grid cells

  • @BERA Thanks for the help. Can you please provide a stepwise process on how to go about it? I am pretty new to QGIS.
