I have been given a CSV (which has been converted from a RDF). I want to convert the CSV file to a usable format so that I can display these polygons in QGIS.

CSV File

The original file and some other formats are available here, but no format seems to work with QGIS. http://datos.santander.es/dataset/?id=distritos

How can I convert it to a usable format, such as GeoJson?

I can import the file using the delimited text file import button, simply chose semicolon ; as the delimiter and WKT as the geometry type. This leaves you with the simple task of finding out what the projection of the data is. I tried searching the site but my spanish isn't that good.

  • That worked properly, I had tried dragging the csv file which didn't work.

    Dragging the csv file to canvas adds it as a geometryless table, useful for joining with exiting layers. If you want the geometry from the file, some more information are necessary, that can be set in the delimited text dialogue.
