NAME

       pkascii2ogr - program to create vector points or polygons from text file

SYNOPSIS

       pkascii2ogr [-i input] [-o output] [-f OGRformat] [-x col] [-y col] [-line] [-n fieldname]
                   [-ot type] [-fs separator]

DESCRIPTION

       pkascii2ogr creates a vector dataset (points or single polygon) from an ASCII textfile.  A
       better  alternative is to use virtual vector datasets ⟨http://www.gdal.org/drv_vrt.html⟩ .
       Specify the position of the vertices (x and y) in the columns defined by the  options  (-x
       -y),  starting from 0.  The default is to use the first (-dx 0) and second (-dx 1) columns
       for x and y respectvely.  Specify the names and types of the  remaining  columns  in  your
       input  file  via the option pairs -n and -ot respectively.  The default field separator is
       space.

OPTIONS

       -i filename, --input filename
              input ASCII file

       -o filename, --output filename
              Output file

       -f OGRformat, --f OGRformat
              Output sample file format

       -x col, --x col
              column number of x (0)

       -y col, --y col
              column number of y (1)

       -l, --line
              create OGRPolygon as geometry instead of points.  Fields are taken from first point
              and  polygon  is automatically closed (no need to repeat first point at last line).
              (false: use OGRPoint)

       -n fieldname, --name fieldname
              Field names for the columns in the input ascii file

       -ot type, --otype type
              Field type (Real, Integer, String) for each of the fields as defined by name

       -a_srs EPSG:number, --a_srs EPSG:number
              Override the projection for the output file, use epsg: or Wkt string

       -fs separator, --fs separator
              field separator.

       -v n, --verbose n
              verbose (0)

EXAMPLE

       Create  a  vector  shape  file  (output.shp)  from  input  ASCII  file  (input.txt).   The
       coordinates  x  (longitude)  and y (latitude) can be found in input.txt as columns 3 and 2
       respectively (columns start counting from 0).  The remaining 2 columns  in  input.txt  are
       used  as  fields  (attributes)  of  type integer: id (column 0) and label (column 3).  The
       projection is set to lat lon (epsg:4326).

       pkascii2ogr -i input.txt -o output.shp -x 2 -x 1 -n id -ot Integer -n label -ot Integer -a_srs epsg:4326
