comment A comprehensive, user-friendly GDAL manual?
@R.K. The unknown territory I came across today was creation options, commonly used under the -co function I believe. In particular, I wondered which compression type to use for a GeoTiff. They are mentioned but not explained here - gdal.org/frmt_gtiff.html. I also don't understand where the utilities with .py extensions can be used. QGIS maybe? On a broader note, having never been formally taught GDAL I just find the utilities page a bit too technical. I guess my expectations are high, having used ESRI help pages for a while...

@iant modifying the loop as you've suggested in the link to something like this wclause=newcode="$att" ogr2ogr -where '$wclause' -f "ESRI Shapefile" $OUTPUT/$att.shp $INDATA created a syntax error in the SQL statement.

Thanks for the second suggestion. Unfortunately, this produces the same empty shapefiles as a result too.

Hi - thanks for your reply. Even with the escape, the shapefiles are coming out empty, so the -where switch isn't working.
