I have used Grass GIS imported a .shp file; I now want to export this file to MySQL.
I understood that MySQL will contain the function of all three the files necessary in a Shape file system (.shp - .db - .shx). The import works fine but when I try to export to MySQL I get the following error.
ERROR: Unable to open OGR data source 'Test'
At some stage there was also a message that indicated that MySQL or MySQL Spatial is not available.
I have not used QGIS before. However have purchased GlobalMapper and want to use MySQL instead of Shapefiles. The database is too big to recapture all the info in MySQL I will have to find a way to convert the data from shapefile to MySQL.
