I'm just starting out learning GRASS. I am trying to import my first shapefile, and I'm getting an error message:
ERROR: Unable to open data source
I think I'm just not entering the syntax correctly and that's where the problem is, although I suppose it might be something with the file. The file is located here on my computer: D:\Data\GRASSData\NhoodAssoc\Associations.shp.
Here are the instructions on importing I'm following: https://grasswiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Tips_for_Arc_users#Import_of_Shapefiles_into_GRASS.
Under 'Import of Shapefiles into GRASS' it appears that I should be able to just enter in "v.in.ogr input=associations.shp output=associations." ["input" appears to be the current syntax instead of "dsn" listed in the instructions]. But I get that error when I do.
I've also tried to use the file structure, although I'm not sure how to enter that into the suggested syntax - for example, do I need to start with "D" since that's the drive it's on?
Any idea why I'm getting this error and what I can do to fix it?
