I am getting an error code when I try to import a contour line vector file GRASS via QGIS. I have been trying to create a DEM from the contour lines following this tutorial: http://linfiniti.com/2010/12/3d-visualisation-and-dem-creation-in-qgis-with-the-grass-plugin/

When I try to import the loaded vector (v.in.ogr.qgis) I get the following error message:

v.in.ogr "dsn=C:\GIS\Elevation\Florida Counties\Bradford\Bradford.shp" output=BradfordGrass2 snap=-1 min_area=0.0001 -o

Datum not recognised by GRASS and no parameters found

Over-riding projection check

Layer: Bradford

DBMI-DBF driver error:

Unable to create table: 'create table BradfordGrass2 (cat integer, FNODE_ double precision, TNODE_ double precision, LPOLY_ double precision, RPOLY_ double precision, LENGTH double precision, TOPO5_ double precision, TOPO5_ID double precision, CONTZ integer, CARRYZ integer, ELEV integer, WMD varchar ( 6 ), ADD integer)' Finished with error

I am using five-foot contour lines downloaded from downloaded the data from the FGDL.


Any suggestions as to how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

  • Maybe the column name "ADD" is making trouble? – Micha Sep 15 '13 at 5:36
