Description

In the standard join attributes by locationfeature in QGIS, there are two options:
Take attributes first located feature
Take summary of intersecting features
I woul like a function in QGIS that allows users to take attributes of more than located feature. That is, to get ALL qualitative values the polygons that intersect/overlap. With an attribute column for the value of the first located feature, another for the second located feature, etc. This should work in cases where located features can overlap (e.g. species habitat polygons where more than one species can occupy the same location) but the original polygon onto which we want attributes of the second layer has spatially separate polygons (e.g. watersheds from which we want to know which species are present).
As far as I could tell from stack exchange community, this feature is not available (although I did get solutions in R in pygis).
