ogr_utilitiesOGR Utility Programs - A collection of OGR related programs. The following utilities are distributed as part of the OGR Simple Features toolkit: · ogrinfo - Lists information about an OGR supported data source · ogr2ogr - Converts simple features data between file formats · ogrtindex - Creates a tileindex · ogrlineref - Create linear reference and provide some calculations using it · ogrmerge - Merge several vector datasets into a single one
General Command Line Switches
All GDAL OGR command line utility programs support the following 'general' options. --version Report the version of GDAL and exit. --formats List all vector formats supported by this GDAL build (read-only and read-write) and exit. The format support is indicated as follows: 'ro' is read-only driver; 'rw' is read or write (i.e. supports CreateCopy); 'rw+' is read, write and update (i.e. supports Create). A 'v' is appended for formats supporting virtual IO (/vsimem, /vsigzip, /vsizip, etc). A 's' is appended for formats supporting subdatasets. --format format List detailed information about a single format driver. The format should be the short name reported in the --formats list, such as GML. --optfile file Read the named file and substitute the contents into the command line options list. Lines beginning with # will be ignored. Multi-word arguments may be kept together with double quotes. --config key value Sets the named configuration keyword to the given value, as opposed to setting them as environment variables. Some common configuration keywords are SHAPE_ENCODING (force shapefile driver to read DBF files with the given character encoding) and CPL_TEMPDIR (define the location of temporary files). Individual drivers may be influenced by other configuration options. --debug value Control what debugging messages are emitted. A value of ON will enable all debug messages. A value of OFF will disable all debug messages. Another value will select only debug messages containing that string in the debug prefix code. --help-general Gives a brief usage message for the generic GDAL OGR command line options and exit.
