I want to do what this person has asked here. I am using QGIS 3.16
I have copied what was suggested and what seemed to work for the OP, however I am not getting any information displayed. The data is a CSV file with Ontario COVID data as well as lat and long info. Excel reads no problem and putting that URL into a web browser will download the CSV file. Ideally I would like to read it directly as it changes daily.
Also, is there a way to debug this in QGIS? I would expect to get some kind of error but it just loads the feature name based on filename with no data. It does append the layer name from the VRT so it must be reading something.
Here is my VRT file:
<OGRVRTDataSource> <OGRVRTLayer name="COVID Cases"> <SrcDataSource relativeToVRT="0">"/vsicurl/https://data.ontario.ca/dataset/f4112442-bdc8-45d2-be3c-12efae72fb27/resource/455fd63b-603d-4608-8216-7d8647f43350/download/conposcovidloc.csv"</SrcDataSource> <GeometryType>wkbPoint</GeometryType> <LayerSRS>WGS84</LayerSRS> <GeometryField encoding="PointFromColumns" x="Reporting_PHU_Longitude" y="Reporting_PHU_Latitude"/> </OGRVRTLayer></OGRVRTDataSource>
