I have been wondering about the 'long ints' in FGDBs. They are 32 bit, which is just a regular int in most places. Is it possible to actually have a field be a 64 bit int?
I have some bigint's (64 bit) in a PostGIS database that I am translating into a FGDB with ogr2ogr and they all max out in long ints (2,147,483,647) in the FGDB. I know I can cast them as text and it will get the numbers in there, but that makes it harder to deal with them as numbers. I played with the doubles a little bit, but they start to go into scientific notation once they are too large, which is also not useful.
