Re: Add new shp to existing shp

did you try "import polygons as closed polylines"  - a checkbox in the mapimport command - to see if that makes a difference since you won't have the mpolygons?


Just a thought from looking at the image and seeing all of the polygons as filled shapes.  closed polylines usually wouldn't be filled like that.

Hello again Everybody!

I wasn't here for a while - busy, busy, buy I was! (still am!)


could I please refresh the topic?


I have received 3 shape files with parcels information. In those files there are about 1000 parcels, each has got ID.

I also created additional shape with new parcels.

I also have access data base with additional information for those parcels.

I'm using data base to theme the plans I'm creating. The data base is updated regularly.

In order to theme plans properly I need to create new shape files with information from data base "build in them" therefore I need to create joints, export to new shapes and all of that would be easier if I only have one master shape file.


Exporting to CAD geometry is not an option bacause it looses the id.


Anyone has an idea?

I'm using Map 2012 but may use 2013 if it has got that functionality.

Witaj !

What about exporting all to a complete .SDF file?

Oh, yes, that's a good idea :smileyhappy: but how exactly to do that?
