DESCRIPTION

db.join joins the content of one attribute table into another attribute table through common attributes.

NOTES

db.join is a front-end to db.execute to allow easier usage. The attribute table must be stored in a SQL database (SQLite, PostgreSQL, MySQL, ODBC, ...). The DBF backend is not supported. Tables can be imported with db.in.ogr.

EXAMPLES

# join soils_legend into mysoils attribute table
db.join mysoils col=label otable=soils_legend ocol=shortname

# verification of join
db.select mysoils
cat|label|id|shortname|longname
1|Aab|||
2|Ba|2|Ba|Barnum silt loam
3|Bb|3|Bb|Barnum silt loam, channeled
4|BcB|4|BcB|Boneek silt loam, 2 to 6
5|BcC|5|BcC|Boneek silt loam, 6 to 9
...
