Does shpescape really work for creating TopoJson from shapefiles? I always get errors if uploading there zipped shapefiles.

The usual error message is:

OSError at /mix/uploads/296e3bc4a4073272c90904ba2e3f04c6/
[Errno 2] No such file or directory

  • Presumably your problem is due to the files being archived. Try unzipping and what if you use topojson instead?github.com/mbostock/topojson/wiki/Command-Line-Reference – mdsumner May 31 '14 at 10:32
  • I just tried uploading a zip and received the same Django error - the site appears to be broken. You should let the maintainer know. – Chad Cooper May 31 '14 at 12:34

I migrated the site to a new server and www-data didn't have access to npm, derp. This should now be fixed. Let me (ideally via feedback on the site) if you still have any issues w/topojson conversion.

  • Thanks a lot for creating shpescape.com Josh. Unfortunately, your website doesn't currently work. Do you have any other suggestions for converting shp files to fusion? – Navid Vafaei Feb 15 '17 at 13:40
