Is there a simple way to convert an AVL file into an SLD or QML file? deegree does not work an my laptop (Java problems)
Or is there a way to open the original AVL file in QGIS?
I've written a small python script to convert ArcView 3.x Legends (.AVL) to QGIS styles (.QML):
You can download the current version here:
python avl2qml.py pathtothe.avl pathtothenew.qml
It's only had limited testing, but I've had some good results with it.
