I'm trying to convert a shapefile into the simple Well Known Text (WKT) format in the example below (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well-known_text).
MULTIPOLYGON (((40 40, 20 45, 45 30, 40 40)), ((20 35, 45 20, 30 5, 10 10, 10 30, 20 35), (30 20, 20 25, 20 15, 30 20)))
I know that I use QGIS to save the shapefile as a CSV, and I can use ogr2ogr to do any numer of conversions. In fact
ogr2ogr -f CSV out.wkt source.shp -lco GEOMETRY=AS_WKT gets me as close as I've come so far, but not quite there. Any suggestions?
p.s. As noted by Mapperz, this thread is very similar to this one. That thread, while it provided the ogr2ogr approach that I noted above, did not solve this particular challenge. The ogr2ogr output I'm getting looks like this (I've truncated the lines). Apparently, I just haven't figured out how to get ogr2ogr to use multipolygon.
