I tried to use the Python module networkx and specifically the read-shp () to ensure the transformation of a graph to a file sharpe but I always find this error noting that this is the first time I developed Python (level zero).

       >>> import networkx as nx


       >>> G=nx.read_shp('/home/test.shp')

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'read_shp'

thank you in advance for helping me

Do you still have this issue? if you are, try with a different line or point shapefile (different producer) and see how it works out for you – dassouki Jul 6 '13 at 17:30
