When I try to spatially join event data (points) and shapefiles (polygon) it does run, however, it displays the polygon attributes as <Null>. Both datasets cover the African continent. As far as I checked both files use the same coordinating system.
This is what I inserted in the spatial join function:
Target features: point data (10,335 obs)
Join features: polygon data (816 objects)
Join one to one
Intersect / within etc. all give same result
Join_count gives me 0. Also, when I use the polygon data as target and point data as joined features the programme doesnt run at all and gives me: Invalid SQL syntax[near "IN": syntax error].
Anybody who knows what I am doing wrong?
