I follow the instructions to import a shape-file to GRASS and it does not work with your world_borders file! Importing the cities is no problem, so I guess I suppose my location and everything is ok…
The following error-message appears, when I enter the v.in.ogr prompt for the world_borders
” A datum name wgs84 (WGS_1984) was specified without transformation parameters. Note that the GRASS default for wgs84 is towgs84=0.000,0.000,0.000. Projection of input dataset and current location appear to match. Proceeding with import… Layer: world_borders DBMI-DBF driver error: Column ‘CAT’ already exists (duplicate name) Cannot create table. Error in db_execute_immediate()
ERROR: Cannot create table: create table Weltgrenze2 (cat integer, CAT double precision, FIPS_CNTRY varchar ( 80 ), CNTRY_NAME varchar ( 80 ), AREA double precision, POP_CNTRY double precision) “
So can you please help me what is the problem? Maybe it is also a problem with the shape-file…?
Thank you very much Mike
