I have a found a lot of questions about converting shapefiles to GeoJSON, but how do you convert a GeoJSON to a Shapefile?
I've seen Converting GeoJSON to Shapefile using ogr2ogr? that uses
ogr2ogr, but they look like they are commands for a shell.
Is there a pure Python script to do it?
I've also found this solution that runs without any errors, but the output is still a GeoJSON.
Perhaps explaining how to write as a
import geojson import subprocess import urllib.request as ur url = 'http://ig3is.grid.unep.ch/istsos/wa/istsos/services/ghg/procedures/operations/geojson?epsg=3857' response = ur.urlopen(url) data = geojson.loads(response.read()) with open('D:/Scripts/Stand19North.geojson', 'w') as f: geojson.dump(data, f) args = ['ogr2ogr', '-f', 'ESRI Shapefile', 'D:/Scripts/converted_shp.shp', 'Stand19North.geojson'] subprocess.Popen(args)
