Description

Hello, I would like to ask whether it is possible to include a program to merge vector files just like gdal_merge.py

Please see a related discussion on the GRASS user list: Re: import a folder full of shapefiles and reproject on-the-fly? http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gis.grass.user/24911/focus=24936

There, users discussed the import of a folder with shapefiles into grass for generating a mosaik. I think this could be of use for many users.

A sample script that works: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gis.grass.user/24911/focus=24936

shpmerge - http://perrygeo.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/gis-bin/shpmerge.sh

It would be nice if this could get included into the GDAL/OGR distribution.

Thanks!

Feels like ogr2ogr -update -append to me. If others agree, close the ticket.
