I have a map made up of multiple polygons, with a few hundred thousand
points very small polygons on within it.
I need the larger polygons, but not the
points small polygons. How do I select and remove all the points small polygons, while preserving the larger polygons? (I obviously do not want to do this manually - there are a few too many points for that!)
I'm totally new to QGIS, and I've Googled extensivey with no luck. Probably because I'm unsure what the correct terminology to use in a Google search is!
The files I am using are a .dbf, .prj, .qpj, .shp and .shx. I'm simply dragging the .shp file on to QGIS, and the map appears as one layer. Basically a map of the UK divided into regions (which I want) and covered in points (which do not want).
This is what it looks like up close. I did a dissolve to see if they'd go in to the surrounding layer, with no luck:
