Convert geospatial vector data between file formats. More information:

  • Convert a Shapefile into a GeoPackage:

ogr2ogr -f GPKG {{path/to/output.gpkg}} {{path/to/input.shp}}

  • Reduce a GeoJSON to features matching a condition:

ogr2ogr -where '{{myProperty > 42}}' -f {{GeoJSON}} {{path/to/output.geojson}} {{path/to/input.geojson}}

  • Change coordinate reference system of a GeoPackage from EPSG:4326 to EPSG:3857:

ogr2ogr -s_srs {{EPSG:4326}} -t_srs {{EPSG:3857}} -f GPKG {{path/to/output.gpkg}} {{path/to/input.gpkg}}

  • Convert a CSV file into a GeoPackage, specifying the names of the coordinate columns and assigning a coordinate reference system:

ogr2ogr -f GPKG {{path/to/output.gpkg}} {{path/to/input.csv}} -oo X_POSSIBLE_NAMES={{longitude}} -oo Y_POSSIBLE_NAMES={{latitude}} -a_srs {{EPSG:4326}}

  • Load a GeoPackage into a PostGIS database:

ogr2ogr -f PostgreSQL PG:dbname="{{database_name}}" {{path/to/input.gpkg}}

  • Clip layers of a GeoPackage file to the given bounding box:

ogr2ogr -spat {{min_x}} {{min_y}} {{max_x}} {{max_y}} -f GPKG {{path/to/output.gpkg}} {{path/to/input.gpkg}}
