Intelligent editing of Shapefiles with ESRI spatial indexes
|Reported by:||aharfoot||Owned by:||warmerdam|
Currently the read only limitation of GDAL's support for ESRI spatial indexes can quickly lead to them becoming out of sync with the spatial objects if the latter are edited through GDAL. I can think of a few solutions to this that might be implemented:
- Make the default behaviour of GDAL to not use SBN/SBX ESRI indexes if present.
- Automatically build and switch to a QIX index if a shapefile using SBN/SBX ESRI indexes is edited through GDAL.
- Implement SBN/SBX ESRI index writing and updating functionality!
