If two sets of software (FME and ArcGIS) are throwing up an error (does FME report an error in the log or does fme.exe just crash?) and you've tried two different sets of hardware, then you've got to suspect maybe a corrupt file. Can you try converting the 4th/5th one by itself, to see what happens? I suppose it could be a bug in a component common to ...

While this is an old question, the other answers are not appropriate. Converting Distance (Measured Depth), Dip (Inclination), Azimuth to 3D coordinates depends on how you interpret what is happening between the locations where measurements were taken (survey stations). The standard practice today is "Minimum Curvature" where the assumption is that a ...

If you work with R, use gdalUtils package to do it

You have to build the proj.4 string for the CRS from the parameters given: +proj=lcc +lat_1=44.883333 +lat_2=45.133333 +lat_0=44.791111 +lon_0=-93.383333 +x_0=152400.000000 +y_0=30480.000000 +a=6378418.9409999996 +b=6357033.3098455509 +towgs84=0,0,0,0,0,0,0 +units=us-ft +no_defs Note that x_0 and y_0 have to be in meters, while false Easting and Northing ...

At first you have to know a SRID (EPSG) code of the coordinate reference system (CRS) to which you want to convert lat/lng coordinates - each of existing CRS has any kind of distortion (see this). For example, for Europe, the EPSG:3035 is used for statistical mapping at all scales and other purposes where true area representation is required (equal area ...

Just install GDAL and run it from Bash / terminal. ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" mydata.shp PG:"host=myhost user=myloginname dbname=mydbname password=mypassword" "mytable" Or do not even bother with GDAL and just use something like below in terminal. # pgsql2shp -f myfile -p 5555 my_db roads_table

A DTM raster can be represented by triangle meshes by finding a set of non-overlapping triangles that covers the entire mesh and approximates the elevation field. There are two different types of triangle meshes that can be used for this purpose: a triangulated regular network (TRN), in which every pixel of the raster is represented by a vertex, and all ...

If you have ArcGIS 10+, you can use the convert Coordinate notation tool, as mentioned by Neil Ayres. If you don't have ArcGIS, you can use EarthPoint batch converter, which works directly from a spreadsheet.

With current GDAL 1.11.1, it is possible to read and write GeoPDF vector data with ogr2ogr -f sqlite out.sqlite in.pdf and backward ogr2ogr -f PDF out.pdf in.sqlite Styling a PDF output might still be handwork though. But Acrobat reader is able to display coordinates, and select layers individually.

After finding the geopdf files, I get the same error message with GDAL 1.11.0 that was shipped with QGIS Chugiak, although gdalinfo --formats lists the pdf driver as rw. But it works with GDAL 1.11.1 shipped with QGIS Brighton, current OSGeo4W and the binaries from gisinternals. See also How to add Georeferenced PDF as layer to QGIS 2.0? for some bug ...

Rasters do not have attribute tables which can store independant attribute values. Only one numeric is stored by default, coming from the field that you select. A workaround in your case is to add one field in your line feature class where you make a copy of your FID field (unique values). You can convert your lines to raster using this new field, build a ...

There is a rule for detection of columns containing coordinates based on attribute name. Coordinate column is detected if the attribute name of X coordinate is: x, xcoord, xcoordinate, coordx, coordinatex, longitude, long or the attribute name contains: x_*, *_x Similar for Y coordinate: y, ycoord, ycoordinate, coordy, coordinatey, latitude, lat or ...

You can add a .dbf file to QGIS using Add Vector layer. You get a geometryless layer with the attribute table which you can join to the raster or other vector files.
