I'm trying to open a .tar file using
The file to be opened is located at:
In Python I have the following snippet:
driver = ogr.GetDriverByName('ESRI Shapefile') driver.Open(/vsitar//my_network_drive/scratch/my_file.tar/my_file.shp`
This does not seem to work even though the file exists.
However, if I were to map the network drive say to Z
driver = ogr.GetDriverByName('ESRI Shapefile') driver.Open(/vsitar/Z:/scratch/my_file.tar/my_file.shp`)
This does work.
The documentation seems to show that what I want to achieve is possible
/vsitar//home/even/my.tar/subdir/my.tif # (absolute path to the .tar)
Does anyone know a way to fix this without having to specifically map a drive?
