I have a shapefile with 3D linestrings. I want to convert this to 2D multilinestrings
ogr2ogr -t_srs EPSG:4326 Road_wgs84_2d_mlt.shp Road_wgs84.shp -nlt PROMOTE_TO_MULTI -dim 2 -progress
ogrinfo -so -al Road_wgs84_2d_mlt.shp
OGRFeature(Road_wgs84_2d_mlt1):0 ID (String) = D291A5DD-66FA-4764-87F9-80D9FB8A83F5 DISTNAME (String) = (null) ROADNUMBER (String) = B9097 CLASSIFICA (String) = B Road DRAWLEVEL (String) = 0 OVERRIDE (String) = F FEATCODE (Integer) = 15743 LINESTRING (-3.444786910479451 56.164060208744381 52.480434944853187,-3.446986978754905 56.164483742630381 52.48251925688237)
As you can see the -nlt flag has not promoted the linestring to multilinestring. What am I doing wrong?
I have also tried -nlt MULTILINESTRING with the same result
