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.
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.
