I have a shapefile with a start and end time field, properly formatted. However my dates range from 1864-1995. When I try to use the shape file with the QGIS time manager plugin I keep getting this message:
An error has occured while executing Python code:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/PROGRA~2/Quantum GIS Wroclaw/apps/qgis/./python/plugins\TimeManager \timemanagerguicontrol.py", line 342, in updateTimeExtents self.dock.horizontalTimeSlider.setMinimum(mktime(timeExtents.timetuple())) ValueError: year out of range
I found that one limitation of time manager is: The range of manageable years is limited due to limitations in time.mktime. The exact range is platform dependent.
Is there a way to find out what the exact range is or change it?
When I tested a sample of my shapefile for 1977 and 1984 they worked fine.
