I have installed QGIS for Ubuntu (linux) and downloaded some GIS electoral data from the AEC. When I try to open the files (they have MID and MIF extensions), the application does not recognise the files. What can I do to open these files in QGIS?
QGIS can read MapInfo files. Drag & Drop the MID / MIF files onto the Map Canvas. If you try to open it by Project | Open it will not work.
Project | Open
