Upload a Shapefile to display on the map.
- Import Features
- Can use the Python bindings for GDAL/OGR as we do for the GADM importer
- Option A: Import just to display as an overlay
- Work on this has started as gis_layer_shapefile in Trunk
- Needs styling
- Option B: Import into Native Tables via an XSL Transform
- See below for code to convert SHP to an lxml.etree
- Upload to GeoServer co-app & add a layer which accesses this via WMS/WFS (although the UI should show in the 'Shapefiles layers' section)
We can include TM_WORLD_BORDERS-0.3.zip as a useful base/sample
- Integrate FeatureServer
- Integrate Ogre - convert to GeoJSON for easy import
- Build a .map file for MapServer using Python MapScript

Our idea is to use a basic web form with a file upload (similar to the Import from OpenStreetMap) where you can select which ShapeFile to use. You should also be able to set basic information including database connection details. This will then upload the shape and use OGR2OGR to convert the ShapeFile to geometry and import it into the specified database.
A basic OGR2OGR which should accomplish the import is:
OGR2OGR -overwrite -f "PostgreSQL" PG:dbname=databaseconnection shapefile.sh
This could be called directly from Python by running it as a sub process.
Alternatively, to use Python bindings, you could perform the import using GDAL which would allow more control over the import directly within Python, but should still handle the import into Postgres.
