Opening gdb files

Paul Lens-2
Hi List,

I cannot open gdb files, using QGIS 1.8.9  GDAL/OGR 1.9.2 on windows
Vista sp2.

According to the post:
"http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/26285/how-to-get-gdb-esri-file-geodatabase-support-in-quantum-gis-osgeo4w-qgis",
the gdal-filegdb pack should have put a "FileGDBAPI.dll" file  at
c:\OSGeo4W\bin, but I don't find it.

I only find the ogr_FileGDB.dll file at c:\OSGeo4W\bin\gdalplugins.

Any hint?

(the gdb files are "CCM2" data downloadable at http://ccm.jrc.it 
(instant access after registration))

Thanks for any response and for this very interesting user's list,

     Paul

Did you choose add vector data, folder?
then browse to the folder.gdb.

Hi List,

Completing my previous post:
- I downloaded the FileGDBAPI.dll file at
http://trac.assembla.com/dnrgps/browser/trunk/dnrgps/GDAL/bin/FileGDBAPI.dll?rev=20
    The filetype "ESRI FileGDB" is now displayed in the "add vector"
module. But I still get  the message
     "xxx.gdb is not a valid or recognized data source".
- reinstalling the gdal-filegdb pack doesn't change anything.

Thanks for any hint,

     Paul

I used "Add vector layer"  "Directory"
The source type is then set to "ESRI FileGDB".
I browse then to the dataset  which is a xxx.gdb directory.

I don't know if this can interfere but the bitdefender's "Active Virus Control" blocked an upgrade with OSGeo4W. I had to signal osgeo4w-setuup-work.exe as trusted. After a reboot, Qgis seems to word fine.

The webpage doesn't tell the version. But I see the latest version of
the data (CCM2.1) dates back to July 2008.
It should then still be version 9. That could be the reason why iI get
the error message.
I'll send them a mail.

Thanks a lot for your mails.

Re: Opening gdb files

Paul Lens-2
Hi Jürgen,

Thanks for your answer.

This means that the ESRI API is absolutely necessary.
Moreover, if I don't misunderstand it, it needs to be built, using
Visual Studio.
Seems at first sight very complicated.

In any case, I sent an e-mail to the data provider, asking him to
provide these data in a less closed format, such as a shapefile.


Thanks again for all the responses,

Paul

Well, you just need to obtain the right FileGDBAPI.dll from ESRI.


> Seems at first sight very complicated.

Yes, if the SDK license would clearly state, that it's ok to redistribute that
DLL, things would be easier (see the discussion in the tickets on the page).
