I am trying to open an open license shapefile in QGIS (this is the link: https://pub.uni-bielefeld.de/record/2674065), I am not sure if the information is not there or if the content is not complete; in the package there is only one file without extension...I am a begginer so probably I am doing something wrong.
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions relating to general IT or with no clear GIS component, are off-topic here but can be researched/asked at Stack Overflow (software development), Super User (computing hardware and software), Database Administrators (relational databases) and other SE sites" – user30184, AndreJ, whyzar, Vince, Hornbydd
Was able to open it in Windows.
I would recommend a good unzip program, like 7zip:
With this you can open up the
Navigate into the mapping-indias-elections.tag file.
And finally open the mapping-indias-elections file.
This will then show the sub folders that contain the actual ShapeFiles, which you can extract.
