The Merge Wizard enables you to merge geometry of several layers into one.

  • Currently supported formats are ESRI Shapefiles and PostGIS tables for vectors and GeoTiff files for rasters.
  • Source layers have to have the same geometry type (point, line or polygon). It is not possible to merge e.g point and polygon.

  1. Select Merge Wizard from the Tools tab.
