I am experimenting with the OGR OpenFileGDB zip file format in QGIS 2.8.1 on Windows 8.1 x64 and although OGR says it can happily read the format (with a couple of Code Page warnings) I am unable to load the data into QGIS -
C:\Data\Vector>ogrinfo -ro -so data.gdb.zip
Warning 1: Recode from CP_OEMCP to UTF-8 failed with the error: "No such file or directory". Warning 1: Recode from CP_OEMCP to UTF-8 failed with the error: "No error". Warning 1: Recode from CP_OEMCP to UTF-8 failed with the error: "No error".
INFO: Open of
data.gdb.zip' using driverOpenFileGDB' successful.
1: Cadastral_data (Multi Polygon)
2: State_controlled_roads_surveyed_centreline (3D Multi Line String)
3: Survey_Control (Point) 4: Coastline_and_State_border (Multi Line String)
In QGIS using the Add vector Layer and VSI ogr filehandler/driver I am able to select the data.gdb.zip file, but the dialog then responds with -
I am guessing the Warnings are serious enough to make the datasource invalid, so I tried creating a new zipped, FileGDB using OGR2OGR on a simple SHP file but I get the same error.
I am able to load the raw/unzipped gdb directory successfully using either the ESRI FileGDB or OpenFileGDB driver.
Would anyone be able to recommend a solution please ?
