I need to convert some autocad .dwg files to ESRI
Someone on the web suggested that gdal/ogr2ogr was
able to perform such conversion, even if only with .dwg files version 2000 or
My problem is that in my environment gdal/ogr seems
not to be able to access .dwg.
In fact when I run
> ogr2ogr -f "ESRI
Shapefile" destfile.shp sourcefile.dwg
I get the following error:
FAILURE:Unable to open datasource `ANZIO_TOP2000.dwg' with the
following drivers. -> ESRI Shapefile -> MapInfo
File -> UK .NTF -> SDTS ->
TIGER -> S57 -> DGN -> VRT
-> REC -> Memory -> BNA ->
CSV -> GML -> GPX -> KML ->
GeoJSON -> GMT -> ODBC -> PGeo
-> XPlane -> AVCBin -> AVCE00 ->
To assure it wasn't a syntax error, I
tried to run the simple command:
> ogrinfo sourcefile.dwg
and I got the same output.
I am using FWTools 2.47 for Windows.
Am I missing something?
Any suggestion would be greatly
