Description

I'm trying to convert e00 files that you can find at (http://geopubs.wr.usgs.gov/open-file/of03-103 ). When I use ogr2ogr on them I get a 0 length .prj file.

These are the steps I took:

bob@bobs-laptop:/tmp$ ogrinfo -al -so bch_geo.e00 PAL
Had to open data source read-only.
INFO: Open of `bch_geo.e00'
      using driver `AVCBin' successful.

Layer name: PAL
Geometry: Polygon
Feature Count: 234
Extent: (-5799.426758, 13865.420898) - (-5402.603516, 13865.652344)
Layer SRS WKT:
LOCAL_CS["POLYCONIC",
    UNIT["METERS",1]]
ArcIds: IntegerList (0.0)
AREA: Real (18.5)
PERIMETER: Real (18.5)
BCH_GEO#: Integer (5.0)
BCH_GEO-ID: Integer (5.0)
LABL: String (35.0)
SHD: Integer (3.0)
PLABL: String (35.0)
SHDFIL: Integer (3.0)

bob@bobs-laptop:/tmp$ ogr2ogr bch_geo_poly.shp bch_geo.e00 PAL
ERROR 6: Can't create fields of type IntegerList on shapefile layers.

<cgs_bob> this is the first time I seen a srs like this: "LOCAL_CS["POLYCONIC",UNIT["METERS",1]]"
