Intersection Join Tool

INTERS~1_img2

 

The Intersection join tool will do a join of two layers based on intersecting parts of those layers. First select the layers in the layer control by clicking on one, holding down shift and then arrow up or down to select the other one as well (these layers will need to be next to each other):

INTERS~1_img3

 

INTERS~1_img4

 

Next click on the tool which will bring up the dialogue. Include Intersections will create a new layer out of the areas at which the two layers intersect. Include Left Remainders and Include Right Remainders will include the parts of the layers not intersecting in the new layer as well; the layer underneath in the layer control is always taken as left and the upper layer as right. In this example I will just tick on Include Intersections. Then click OK:

INTERS~1_img5

INTERS~1_img6

 

You are prompted to set the properties for the new layer that will be created then click OK and your layer has been created:

INTERS~1_img7

 

In the layer data of the new layer you will see the joined data:

INTERS~1_img8

 

 

If I had chosen to include the left remainder, for example, this is how my new layer would look:

 

INTERS~1_img9

 

With the appropriate data in the layer data as well (you’ll see an extra row; this is the left remainder which of course doesn’t join with anything from the right layer):

INTERS~1_img10
