I have a folder full of about 2000 files and I would like to generate a kind of key map for each file so people don't need to just randomly load each one in order to find what is what.
I have the following python code using ogr but OGREnvelope isn't really a OGRGeometry so I can't add it to a shape file or export it as wkt to import in QGIS.
for filename in glob.glob(path + "*.shp"): ds = ogr.Open(filename) layer1 = ds.GetLayer(0) #print filename + " : " + str(layer1.GetExtent()) extent = layer1.GetExtent() # I need to be able to export the extent region as a polygon.
I have been looking around but just can't seem to find anything. I really thought something like this would be easy.
