Are you sure the Shapefile contains points? Shape_Leng is a common attribute for lines. That could be the reason why you can't export X and Y coordinates from your Shapefile. In that case the new question would be how to extract points from those lines. For that, you could go to Processing->ToolBox->QGIS geoalgorithms->Vector geometry ...

Try layering the TOC something like this (disregarding the label layers) and then use Map to KML: Districts: empty fill, white lines 1pt Constituencies: empty file, black lines 2pt Full Area (run dissolve tool on one of the above layers): red fill, blue outline 3pt It's especially useful to have separate layers because you can toggle them in GE. If you ...

Not that I"m aware of, one quick alternative would be: Select Index layer features to exclude In attribute table, switch selection of features Use the Selected option for exporting pages See image below: You could add that idea here: ArcGIS Ideas

You first need to establish what coordinate system the file sent to you is in. The presence of a .prj file indicates it does have one. If it isn't GCS WGS84, you'll need to reproject it to that (or an alternative geographic coordinate system [GCS] if another better suites your requirements). In QGIS you can do this by right-clicking the layer and choosing ...

'Export data' does not retain subtypes...use one of the geoprocessing tools like 'Copy Features' or 'Feature Class To Feature Class' -- if you do this within the same ArcGIS process or 'session' as I like to think of it as (such as the current map doc within which you have interactively selected features), then selected features are honored, subtypes are ...

This will export individual features from a feature class into separate shapefiles based on a name in a field. You will LIKELY need to work with the field names because it will work very differently depending on whether the field is a STRING or some other numeric type etc. Therefore expect to spend some time fiddling with the exact syntax of the WhereClause. ...

Patrick you're on the right track. This is something I've given some thought to so I'll offer some reactions and feedback. Common, Recognized Coordinate Systems First--it's perfectly fine to start the interment dataset in Excel. My guess is you have some "army" of students, genealogy enthusiasts, and possibly some cemetery employees building the point data ...

You can use the Atlas functionality of the Print Composer. You center-coordinate could be a point layer, with a point for the center of the city map or a bound of a polygon if you city is a polygon. The layer defining bound of map is called the coverage layer. The zoom level is either a margin on geometry or scale. You cannot data bind to the zoom level ...

You can do it in two ways: either by having the elevation data stored within the geometry (as a Z-index), or externally in the attributes table. If stored in the geometry, you can use QGIS' own convertion tool (which uses ogr2ogr? I'm not sure), by selecting your layer and 'Saving As...', then changing the export output from the custom ESRI Shapefile to ...

I have a solution for this problem. In the Registry search for the folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ESRI\Desktop10.1\Export\ExportDlg\ShowOptionsPanel and change the value from 0 to 1.
