[gdal-dev] Creating DXF with ogr2ogr

Try adding -nlt POLYGON (also has POINT and LINESTRING options).


We have this option on an older version that used the ODA libraries
directly, so can't guarantee it's still the same.

Subject: [gdal-dev] Creating DXF with ogr2ogr


Hi all,

I'm trying to create DXF files from a PostgreSQL database using ogr2ogr:

ogr2ogr -nln my_data -a_srs EPSG:25832 -s_srs EPSG:25832 -t_srs
EPSG:25832 -f "DXF" my_data.dxf PG:'host=localhost password=xxx user=xxx
dbname=MYDB' -sql "SELECT * FROM my_data"

It works fine with point data, but I get an invalid dxf file for polygon
data. Opening the polygon dxf file results in the following error:

The following error was encountered while reading
in HATCH starting at line 1546:
Error: expected group code 10
Invalid or incomplete DXF input -- drawing discarded.

Do I have to pass any more options to ogr2ogr when creating a polygon
dxf? What did I do wrong?
Does anyone have an idea about that?
