NAME

       shp2pgsql-gui - Graphical User Interface for shp2pgsql

SYNOPSIS

       shp2pgsql-gui [options]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the shp2pgsql-gui command.

       shp2pgsql-gui  is a program that converts ESRI Shape files into SQL statements and imports
       these statements to a PostGIS/PostgreSQL database. The GUI allows  the  user  to  set  the
       shape  file  to  import,  the  PostGIS/PostgreSQL  connection  parameters and some options
       related to the table where the data will be imported to.

       shp2pgsql-gui  can  be  called  with   some   command   line   options   that   fill   the
       PostGIS/PostgreSQL server connection parameters in.

       -d database
              Specifies the name of the database where the data will be imported to.

       -h host
              Specifies  the  host  name of the machine on which the PostGIS/PostgreSQL server is
              running.

       -p port
              Specifies the TCP port on which the  PostGIS/PostgreSQL  server  is  listening  for
              connections.

       -U username
              Specifies the username with which the user will connect to the database.

       -W password
