# Vector Combine, Merge & Extract

### Technical Guides & other documentation

The Vector Merge process lets you combine two or more geometric objects into one. The Vector Combinations process works with two geometric layers &emdash; the source vector (cookie dough) and an operator (cookie cutter). This process lets you add, subtract, use logical operations (AND, XOR, OR), and select from various Extract operations. On the other hand, the Extract process lets you extract points, lines, and/or polygons from a single vector by selecting elements, using a script, or based on element attributes.
