shape file to grid plugin

Jun 29, 2016 at 5:12 PM
Hi all,

Can anyone please help by informing me how to use the shapeFileToGrid.dll with mapwindow5?
If not, by when should it be available?

Thanks for your help, great job.

Hi Dan,

Old MW4 plug-ins won't work with MW5 and I believe the shapeFileToGrid plug-in was not made nor managed by the MapWindow team.
What do you want to do?
Is this the process you want to do: http://www.gdal.org/gdal_rasterize.html

If so we already have some support for this in MapWinGIS. We need to update it according to https://mapwindow.atlassian.net/browse/MWGIS-38
We don't have a MW5 tool for it yet. But I can put it on the list if you like.
When you are a C# developer yourself you can implement it as well.

++++++++++++
BTW. We've recently moved to GitHub: https://github.com/MapWindow

Regards,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the help. Yes, this looks like what I want.

I need to take a polygon shapefile and have it raster-rized (turned into many squares of specified size) so that I can allocate data to the different squares.

I have only recently started coding in C#, so really appreciate the help.

Will you please put it on the list.

Thanks and regards,
Danny

I've added it to the list at https://mapwindow.atlassian.net/browse/TOOLS-40

I'm not sure when it will be created, though.
