I started to use Quantum GIS 2.0.1 Dufour and I'm still trying to understand how to work with it. I have a shape layer in QGIS made of points, and I want to attach a different hyperlink to each of the points. Is that possible? For now, I have only accomplished attaching several hyperlinks, but to the entire shape layer.

You can create a column in your attribute table called "Link" and add the link you like to each point. In the properties menu, you can create a action. Select "Open" as type and give it a name. Klick on add attribute and add the action to the list. You can open the link by klicking on the points with the info-arrow. See also this: Create a hyperlink to a pdf file in the attribute table

  • I'm sorry but I don't understand how can I add the hyperlink in the attribute table. When I add a colum, I can only choose 4 types, but none for hyperlink. I know how to do it by clicking in the properties menu and adding an action. But that way I can't especifie a link to a especific point, can I? Commented Mar 17, 2014 at 14:45

    You choose string as type and add the new column. Then you can add the hyperlink manually for each point.
