One of the powerhouses of GIS is the ability to attach information to geographical objects. This done using attribute tables. In our case each row relates to a polygon and the constraint status of each polygon (constrained or unconstrained) is held in a column.

In order to attach constraint information to each polygon I need to use “Geographical Query”. Watch this video to see how I do it.


I love what you're doing I'll be kick starting my GIS at UQ, St.Lucia Brisbane. I'm in dire need of a refresher course & that's what your tutorials is offering. Thanks

I'm a new PhD student studying water resources at University of Malaysia and I 'm really interested in learning gis. However, I'm a beginner in it. The video was very perfect and I hope van follow your other videos.
