I'm using Python and OGR to extract the layers of a DXF file and convert them into SHP.
I began with:
import ogr, os, sys driver = ogr.GetDriverByName('DXF') datasource = driver.Open('test1.dxf', 0) numberLayers = datasource.GetLayerCount() for i in range(0, numberLayers): layer = datasource.GetLayerByIndex(i) layerName = layer.GetName() numberFeatures = layer.GetFeatureCount() print 'Layer=%s|Features=%s' % (layerName, numberFeatures)
but I get one only layer: entities (as expected: http://www.gdal.org/ogr/drv_dxf.html)
Obviously, it's the same information as if I execute:
ogrinfo -so test1.dxf entities
My DXF file contains several CAD layers: "ROADS", "ELEVATION", ... Is it possible to handle these layer names with OGR? Thank you very much.
