I am wanting to use FWTools to rasterize a large number of Shapefile polygons. I have used the Rasterize tool in QIS and it works great. But when I use the generated code in FWTools the process does not work. Here is the generated code:
gdal_rasterize -a COVTYPE -ts 5000 3705 -l LCC001k_dis C:/GlobalData/Vectors/LCC/LCCRasters/LCC001k_dis.shp C:/GlobalData/Vectors/LCC/LCCRasters/LCC001k.tif
Unfortunately I am not a programmer, so I am not able to create my own script to perform this task. Can anyone assist me with why this code doesn't work in FWTools, or what changes I need to make to utilize the Rasterize functionality.
