I am using on online tool built with ogr2ogr to convert shapefiles to geoJSON: http://ogre.adc4gis.com/

It's worked well except for one shapefile, and I can't see why... The shapefile has only six attribute columns: ObjectID, a shape field, a date field and three text fields..when I try to convert all that I get is:

{"errors":["Unexpected token ,"]}

I tried selecting 'skip failures' in the convertor, and I have looked for some inconsistency in the attribute names and columns but I don't see anything unusual.

What could be giving me this odd result?

  • Probably something to do with comma character somewhere. Can you share the shapefile?

  • I checked for that, and I can't see a comma anywhere--I'm not sure how to share an actual shapefile here but I added a screenshot of the attribute table above.
