I have some geometry which can be perceived as regions within a country and wish to create a shapefile which contains all the regions along with some attributes (e.g. name, population, area code, etc.)
I have the geometry from the regions in x,y WGS84 lat lon (not polygons so cannot be sure they are closed loops which is priority) currently stored in mySQL.
I wish to be able to create a single shp (with associated dbf and shx files) to contain this data.
Any pointers on command line tools and methods to do this would be gratefully received.
