[GRASS-user] interlis import

Dear List,

does someone have experience in importing the topological format 
It seems to need an .ili file, that will define polygons, lines and 
points, but I don't see how to integrate this one in the v.in.ogr command.

I managed to use ogr2ogr and tested conversion to shapefile. This one 
uses the java interpreter ili2c.jar. (see: 
http://www.gdal.org/ogr/drv_ili.html). It will only work if the .ili is 
intergrated as in the command:

ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" shpdir 

When I import the .itf to GRASS it will only create lines instead of 
areas. Same result for conversion with ogr2ogr mentioned above when the 
.ili is not integrated.

Any Feedback would be helpful.


P.S. Testfiles can be found http://www.interlis.ch/
