[postgis-users] ESRI Shapes from database

I know that SharpMap.NET piggy backs on GDAL for its support of OGR datasources such as MapInfo etc so I think the compiled bindings ready to use for .NET 2.0 is available as part of that project.
Not quite sure how that would help Lee though.
Hope that helps,

Hi Lee,

cat <file> | psql -d <db> -c "copy <table> from STDIN;"

How this can be invoked in .net I have no idea.... but there si an example :-)

If the user who makes the connection is a postgres superuser, you should be
able to copy to/from files directly.

Another option, are there any .net bindings for GDAL/OGR?
