I'm having problems labeling a shapefile exported by ArcGIS. It's a simple Pointshape with a few attributes (the attributetable is shown corectly by QGIS). But I can't activate labeling my points with one of those attributes. Well I can activate it but it doesn't show any labels. The points itself are displayed without problems.
The Shapefile (zipped - 32KB) can be downloaded for testing (http://www.marcolechner.de/20061119.zip ).


P.S. tried it with 0.7.4 (stable) and 0.8.0p2 0.8.0p3 on Win32 -ArcGIS shows them without problems (normally this happens the other way round)

Seems to be a problem with that particular shapefile. Every other shapefile that I've tested works fine. Qgis prints an error:

Unknown geometry type of -2147483647

for each point that it tries, but fails, to label.

#2 Updated by Gary Sherman over 17 years ago

Unknown geometry type of -2147483647 means that QGIS doesn't understand the geometry type and doesn't know how to process it. Ogr2ogr reveals:

INFO: Open of @/Volumes/disk0s5/downloads/20061119 Folder/20061119.shp'
using driver @ESRI Shapefile' successful.

Layer name: 20061119
Geometry: 3D Point
Feature Count: 716

3D points are not supported as a layer type. This will be addressed at 0.9 or the next point release.

#3 Updated by Marco Hugentobler about 17 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

This works now in svn head (0.9). 2.5D types are fully supported.
