Is there any way i can find out what layers do these files contain?
Because i can retrieve a map ,but an empty map...
I tried to read the data using ogr writing in the mapfile

        NAME "city"
        TYPE line
        CONNECTION v_roads_arc.shp
                COLOR 0 0 0

but unfortunately the result is the same...
