NAME

       shputils - shapefile utility

SYNOPSIS

       shputils in_shp_file out_shp_file args

DESCRIPTION

       The  program will append to an existing shape file or it will create a new file if needed.
       Only the items in the first output file will be preserved. When an  item  does  not  match
       with  the  append  theme  then  the  item  might be placed to an existing item at the same
       position and type.

       OTHER FUNCTIONS:

       ·   Describe all items in the dbase file (Use ALL for more than 5000 recs.)

       ·   Select a group of shapes from a comma separated selection list.

       ·   UnSelect a group of shapes from a comma separated selection list.

       ·   Clip boundary extent or by theme boundary. Touch writes all the shapes that touch  the
           boundary.  Inside  writes  all  the  shapes  that  are completely within the boundary.
           Boundary clips are only the min and max of a theme boundary.

       ·   Erase boundary extent or by theme boundary. Erase is the direct opposite of  the  Clip
           function.

       ·   Change  coordinate  value  units between meters and feet. There is no way to determine
           the input unit of a shape file. Skip this function if the shape file is already in the
           correct  unit. Clip and Erase will be done before the unit is changed. A shift will be
           done after the unit is changed.

       ·   Shift X and Y coordinates.

       Finally,

       There can only be one select or unselect in the command line.

       There can only be one clip or erase in the command line. There can only be  one  unit  and
       only one shift in the command line.

       Examples:

       shputils in.shp out.shp SELECT countycode 3,5,9,13,17,27

       shputils in.shp out.shp CLIP 10 10 90 90 Touch FACTOR Meter Feet

       shputils in.shp out.shp FACTOR Meter 3.0

       shputils in.shp out.shp CLIP clip.shp Boundary Touch SHIFT 40 40

       shputils in.shp out.shp SELECT co 112 CLIP clip.shp Boundary Touch

       USAGE: shputils DescribeShape {ALL}

       USAGE: shputils InputShape OutShape|AppendShape

       { FACTOR FEET|MILES|METERS|KM FEET|MILES|METERS|KM|factor }

       { SHIFT xshift yshift }

       { SELECT|UNSEL Item valuelist }

       { CLIP|ERASE xmin ymin xmax ymax TOUCH|INSIDE|CUT }

       { CLIP|ERASE theme BOUNDARY TOUCH|INSIDE|CUT }

       Note:  CUT  is  not  complete and does not create intersections. For more information read
       programmer comment.
