This question already has an answer here:
I want to convert a .shp to .tif. So I find the tool gdal_rasterize may help. But when I input the file it always meet this error:
pointer hDs is NULL in GDAL GetProjectionRef
I have tried different versions of GDAL(1.11.0 and 2.1.0),same error. The test data is from http://qgis.org/downloads/data/qgis_sample_data.zip
1)Is this wrong because of the data?or the wrong syntax?
2)What is the correct syntax for using gdal_rasterize()?
3)Is there a better way to convert shp to png(or tif)?coding by myself is ok but I use Java.
