Working in R Studio I'm executing the lines:

setwd("D:/Perfil_IBGE/4. IBGE") 
pasta = "1. Shapefiles Brasil" 
shapefile_brasil = "BRUFE250GC_SIR" 
shp <- rgdal::readOGR(dsn = pasta, layer = shapefile_brasil)

the result is: "no features found"

I work with Windows 10 and I checked about GDAL in my machine and I have this library installed.

What should I do?

  • Welcome to GIS.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – nebi Apr 20 '18 at 5:47
  • I see 2 possible sources of error: special characters or layer name. What happen if you remove points and spaces in your names like D:/Perfil_IBGE/4_IBGE/1_Shapefiles_Brasil and what does the output of the command – nebi Apr 20 '18 at 5:49
  • and what does output the command ogrListLayers(".") (in the directory where you have the shapefile) ? – nebi Apr 20 '18 at 5:57
  • what does ogrInfo(pasta) return? This is similar: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/249781/… I'd try sf as well, but more help really needs access to this data set, is it publically available? – mdsumner Apr 20 '18 at 22:56
