I have searched for an answer to this, but couldn't find anything useful. I have got a shapefile consisting of a number of polygons, and another shapefile with a number of points.

I want to add a column in the points shapefile. For each point, I want the column to contain the name of the polygon that surrounds it.

In simple terms, I just want to find out to which polygon each points belongs to. Any tips?

In QGIS, you find Join attributes by location and Add polygon attributes to points which both do what you want.

I just published a comparison of the two tools.
