I tried the solution posted in:

to generate polylines from a csv file.

When I load the shapefile into QGIS, it is not displaying the lines.

Is this a known issue with QGIS?

I am using QGIS 2.8.2 on a Mac.

I can see that the coordinates are in the shapefile when I do this:

import shapefile
test = shapefile.Reader(shpFilePath)
shapes = test.shapes()

for i in xrange(0,len(shapes)):
    x = shapes[i]
    a = x.__geo_interface__
    print a['coordinates']

Is there another software we could use to view the shapefiles?

  • Perhaps the spatial reference isn't set or doesn't match the data. Can you give a list of a few coordinates and spatial reference please. The exact implementation of the 3 links might be significant, can you post that also. Please edit your question to include the relevant details. Jul 17, 2015 at 2:45
