I am working on a project for my university and this is my first solo project.
I have two layers:
- The first layer is a land cover classification with 6 classes.
- The second layer is a set of points that are locations of a mammal we have been observing.
I have imported the point layer into QGIS using their lat/long and now have them overlaid on top of my land cover classification layer. I now want to understand in which land cover classes these points/observations have occurred.
If there are around 1000 points, how do I understand how many of them have occurred in each land cover class?
For example, if there were 12 points located in areas classed as "urban" then this would equate to 12/1000 or 1.2% of sightings of the animal being sighted in urban areas. I can calculate the percentages afterwards myself, but just want to understand how to assign all of the points to the land cover classes they are located within.
