Shapefile Conversion to GML

Dear All,

I have been trying to convert my shapefile for Nigeria Admin0 and Admin1 levels into GML but its not working. I was able to convert the Admin2 at but I am wondering, what could be the problem here.

I also tried converting without copying the dbf file from the Admin file downloaded and it converted without errors but as soon as I tried to use it with the dbf file that i copied from the download admin file for Nigeria, I am unable to convert it.

Below is the response while trying to do that.

Regards,

Adedayo

Well, it seems pretty clear from the logs.

Failed to process SRS definition: EPSG:14684

Try looking here http://www.epsg-registry.org/

and this is not a valid projection.

However, looking from the bounding box, it looks like it may be 4326 to begin with.

Why do you think you need to use EPSG:14684 as the source projection?

Jason

Thanks a lot Jason. I also tried converting without first trying to convert to 4326 knowing that it may already be in that projection. I noticed later on that This conversion worked if i didn’t use the original dbf file that I downloaded with it. I mean it converted when I used the dbf file generated after working on it at mapshaper.org.

As soon as I changed the dbf file to the one downloaded from the shapefile site, it produced the error.

The dbf file might be bad though. I have downloaded another from a new site and hopefully it will work.

Hi Adedayo,

If you need to modify attributes in the dbf file, you should only do this in a GIS software such as www.qgis.org - never modify the dbf on its own (eg in Excel) as this will result in a corrupt shapefile. It’s also much easier to define the projection or to convert to a different projection in QGIS, and once you have your shapefile ready you can simply save it as a gml file.

To add to Brams mail, I have had issues with MapShaper and the DBF’s it produces. Normally, I just trash these, and use the original DBF from the unmodified shapefile.

I am still not convinced it is a problem with the DBF though, as clearly the projection which you provided in the first conversion was not correct.

Regards,

Jason

Hi Adedayo,

If you need to modify attributes in the dbf file, you should only do this in a GIS software such as www.qgis.org - never modify the dbf on its own (eg in Excel) as this will result in a corrupt shapefile. It’s also much easier to define the projection or to convert to a different projection in QGIS, and once you have your shapefile ready you can simply save it as a gml file.

Thanks a lot Jason. I also tried converting without first trying to convert to 4326 knowing that it may already be in that projection. I noticed later on that This conversion worked if i didn’t use the original dbf file that I downloaded with it. I mean it converted when I used the dbf file generated after working on it at mapshaper.org.

As soon as I changed the dbf file to the one downloaded from the shapefile site, it produced the error.

The dbf file might be bad though. I have downloaded another from a new site and hopefully it will work.

Well, it seems pretty clear from the logs.

Failed to process SRS definition: EPSG:14684

Try looking here http://www.epsg-registry.org/

and this is not a valid projection.

However, looking from the bounding box, it looks like it may be 4326 to begin with.

Why do you think you need to use EPSG:14684 as the source projection?

Dear All,

I have been trying to convert my shapefile for Nigeria Admin0 and Admin1 levels into GML but its not working. I was able to convert the Admin2 at but I am wondering, what could be the problem here.

I also tried converting without copying the dbf file from the Admin file downloaded and it converted without errors but as soon as I tried to use it with the dbf file that i copied from the download admin file for Nigeria, I am unable to convert it.

Below is the response while trying to do that.

Yes, just use the shp and shx files from Mapshaper, not DBF. Just make a copy of your original DBF and rename it to the same as the output from Mapshaper.

Oh thanks Bram and Jason.

I actually used the original DBF from the unmodified Shaprefile and even without trying to use any projection but doing a direct conversion into GML, it still have the same issues.

What if I just use the original shapefile, dbf and shx instead of trying to work it down at mapshaper.org.

Does this have a an effect on the database and GIS?

Thanks a lot

Hi Knust,

That is exactly what I did. Same thing I did for the Level 2 of this shape file and it worked.

Yes, just use the shp and shx files from Mapshaper, not DBF. Just make a copy of your original DBF and rename it to the same as the output from Mapshaper.

I am still not convinced it is a problem with the DBF though, as clearly the projection which you provided in the first conversion was not correct.

Hi Adedayo,

If you need to modify attributes in the dbf file, you should only do this in a GIS software such as www.qgis.org - never modify the dbf on its own (eg in Excel) as this will result in a corrupt shapefile. It’s also much easier to define the projection or to convert to a different projection in QGIS, and once you have your shapefile ready you can simply save it as a gml file.

Thanks a lot Jason. I also tried converting without first trying to convert to 4326 knowing that it may already be in that projection. I noticed later on that This conversion worked if i didn’t use the original dbf file that I downloaded with it. I mean it converted when I used the dbf file generated after working on it at mapshaper.org.

As soon as I changed the
dbf file to the one downloaded from the shapefile site, it produced the error.

The dbf file might be bad though. I have downloaded another from a new site and hopefully it will work.

Well, it seems pretty clear from the logs.

Failed to process SRS definition: EPSG:14684

Try looking here http://www.epsg-registry.org/

and this is not a valid projection.

However, looking from the bounding box, it looks like it may be 4326 to begin with.

Why do you think you need to use EPSG:14684 as the source projection?

Dear All,

I have been trying to convert my shapefile for Nigeria Admin0 and Admin1 levels into GML but its not working. I was able to convert the Admin2 at but I am wondering, what could be the problem here.

I also tried converting without copying the dbf file from the Admin file downloaded and it converted without errors but as soon as I tried to use it with the dbf file that i copied from the download admin file for Nigeria, I am unable to convert it.

Below is the response while trying to do that.

Please I have attached the shapefiles and its company that I have been trying to use as downloaded form the site mentioned in the DHIS2 Documentation. I will appreciate if anyone is able to help me convert this into a GML.

Many thanks
