I am new to the GIS world, so I apologize if this has been discussed before. (If so, maybe you can link me to an existing post).
Generally, I am trying to create a new shape file (I can create an empty shape file) using selective polygons from an existing shape file. More specifically, and as an example, I am trying to create a shape file that when displayed will show specific quarter quarters of a section. I have a shape file that has all of the quarter quarters in it. For instance, new shape file WR1000 should include the NWNW, NENE and the NESW of a section. Can I (and how) select these existing polygons from my shape file that includes all of the quarter quarters and include only these in the new WR1000 shape file?
