I am hoping someone can share a way that I can some what automatically (none manual) associate a pre-defined CSV file for use with multiple shapefiles as an attribute Value Map.
I have a number (in the hundreds) of shapefiles that have the same attributes (Type1 and Type2). Both Type1 and Type2 are numeric codes and I will like to apply text descriptions to them. I have generated a CSV file that has the value and description. What I am wondering is, is there a way to apply this CSV to all my shapefiles automatically, or will I have to open each file and associate the CSV file through the Properties dialog.
If there is an alternative method that would provide the same results I would be willing to give it a try.
