I'm writing an ESRI shapefile using writeOGR function of R on a linux platform. Then I visualize the dbf file using dbfdump command to read the attributes but the real numbers in the attribute table are not formatted.

Is there any way to limit the maximum number of decimal digits of these nembers or to give a format to the attributes table?

  • Can you edit the question to show the output of dbfdump so we can see what you mean exactly? – Spacedman Jan 4 at 12:49
