I have a .gdb folder that I imported to QGIS.

Screenshot Album

Keep in mind I am fairly new to GIS Data in general.

This file (.gdb) contains five maps, one is a shapefile and the others I am not sure.

These four remaining maps do not display a gradient as they should, instead they show a big flat colored square. The four maps with an unknown (to me) format have each four tables with more or less data. I think I need to use these tables but I don't know how.

If you know anything about it, or if there are resources regarding this please let me know.

    A file geodatabase can never contain a shapefile. They are two different incompatible data formats.

  • I agree with Vince! However, I suppose someone could mistakenly copy a shapefile's constituent files into a .gdb folder. Not recommend, though!

    @Vince it's a common error to call any vector layer a "shapefile" regardless of actual data format. That being said this question really need some explaining about what they got and in witch format ( map in a gdb ? With 4 table ? Please explain)

  • How have you imported the GDB? Drag n Drop, or via database connection?
