I am trying to start my own GIS project by creating a map of Protected Areas in Malta but I am already struggling with downloading the first Vector Layer! When I try adding the shp file it doesn’t allow me to and give the message ‘not a valid or recognized data source’. The source of the shp files is Natura 2000 - Malta - 27 September 2019 (Natura 2000 sites).
I have also been sent the following link for further data but I do not understand what I can add to the map from here… CDDA 2021 (Nationally Designated Sites).
Can anyone help me please?
