Subject: Re: [gislist] Converting a ESRI Geodatabase to an ESRI Shapefile...

Hi Landon,

You can use ogr2ogr to do this. My suggestion is to download FWTools,
which comes with ogr2ogr. After you install the program will be located
in the bin folder of the installation directory, something like,
C:Program FilesFWTools1.1.3in.

If all you want to do is convert a geodatabase to shapefile the syntax
is,

ogr2ogr out_shp my_pgdb.mdb

The output is a new folder called 'out_shp' containing shapefiles for
each corresponding feature class.

ogr2ogr reference: http://www.gdal.org/ogr/ogr2ogr.html

FWTools: http://fwtools.maptools.org/

Do any of you guys know how to extract an ESRI Shapefile from an ESRI
Personal Geodatabase with FOSS tools? I've got some data from the US
Forest Service that appears only to be available as a Geodatabase.



Thanks.



Landon
