I work for a company that creates software for multiple listing services and real estate agents. We're expanding our coverage area into a new market, and I've been given some files for two different counties which they are calling their "shapefiles". One file is an access database, and the other is a fixed width column text file. Is there some way for me to convert these files to actual ESRI shapefiles?
Here are some examples -
Here's what I'm given in the fixed width file for the "vector" column (from Palm Beach county, Florida):
A0CL10D10L12D40R24U40L2U10 A4L30D2L2D6R2D14L2D6R2D7D11L7D14L14D20R26R8U6L8D6U6R8D11R17U14R5U6L5D6U6R5D6R8D6R14U38L14D12L8CL5D7R5U7 A1L24D12L5D10R5D28R12U4CR22U20L10D10L12D10
I have no idea what the above could be. If you want to see the file here's a small sample: sample.txt
The Access file (from Broward County, Florida):
The access file just says "Long binary data" for the geometry columns. It has a lot of tables named GDB_xxxx (GDB_SpatialRefs, GDB_GeomColumns, etc). I'm guessing this has something to do with Microsoft's spatial format.
Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!
