Collection of libraries and tools built with the Python API of OGR.

Project Description

Introduction

ogrtools is a collection of libraries and tools built with the Python API of OGR.

pyogr library

pyogr gives you OGR commands like ogr2ogr or ogrinfo as Python library, i.e. without calling an external executable file. Most of the code is already included in the OGR source distribution as samples for using the Python API.

  • ogr2ogr.py: ogr2ogr call with stdout/stderr redirection
  • ogrinfo.py: ogrinfo call
  • ogrvrt.py: generate a VRT from a datasource
  • ogrds.py: Call OGR SQL commands on a datasource

interlis library

Extensions for the OGR Interlis driver.

  • Automatic detection of used models in transfer files
  • Extracting enums from IlisMeta model
  • Loading and converting of Interlis models from model repositories

ogrtransform library

OGR has many options to transform data when converting from one format into an other. The ogrtransform library uses a configuration in JSON format to transform data.

Example:

{
  "//": "OGR transformation configuration",
  "src_format": "Interlis 2",
  "dst_format": "PostgreSQL",
  "dst_dsco": {},
  "dst_lco": {

          "src": "Geometry",

        }
      }
    }
  },

          "enum": "prohibition",
          "id": 0
        },
        {
          "enumtxt": "indication",
          "enum": "indication",
          "id": 1
        },
        {
          "enumtxt": "danger",
          "enum": "danger",
          "id": 2
        },
        {
          "enumtxt": "velocity",
          "enum": "velocity",
          "id": 3
        }
      ]

ogrprocessing QGIS plugin

Provides OGR functionality as QGIS SEXTANTE plugin. It was published for QGIS 1.8 and is now included in the core processing algorithms of QGIS 2.0.

Interlis QGIS plugin

GUI for importing and exporting Interlis data with OGR/ogrtools. Includes Python libraries for easy installation. Currently tested with QGIS 2.0.

Development

git clone https://github.com/sourcepole/ogrtools.git

Running tests:

apt-get install python-nose
nosetests

For running ogr commands from source tree:

alias ogr="PYTHONPATH=$(pwd) $(pwd)/ogr_cli/ogr.py"
