I am attempting to get a nice KML for simple review of POI/geocoding from a CSV. I a using ogr2ogr and a VRT. You can see the VRT file below, with two attempts to get this right.
Basically, the issue is using
ogr2ogr -f KML ... with the VRT w/o renaming results in a lot of "SimpleData" tags in the KML.
I'd like to get some CSV fields as the KML Placemark "Name" and "Description", concatenated fields, actually.
-dsco NameField=RegionName option in
ogr2ogr, but I don't see a way to concatenate fields into name, e.g Street, City, State..
In the .vrt below, the
SrcSQL field results in no records. It does open, but with layer info. The
Field tag (when not commented out) does result all records with in the new alias, but the "name" is the only field that comes through, it drops all other fields. Further, is there a way to concatenate fields using ?
Of course, perhaps ogr is not capable of concatenation ...
<OGRVRTDataSource> <OGRVRTLayer name="roofing-poi2"> <SrcDataSource>roofing-poi2.csv</SrcDataSource> <GeometryType>wkbPoint</GeometryType> <LayerSRS>WGS84</LayerSRS> <GeometryField encoding="PointFromColumns" x="Longitude" y="Latitude"/> <!-- <Field src="StreetAddress" name="name" /> --> <SrcSQL>SELECT StreetAddress as name</SrcSQL> </OGRVRTLayer> </OGRVRTDataSource>
