Importing Shapefiles with islands
July 30, 2012 Leave a comment
A user reported that when he imported his Shapefiles containing islands, the islands did not show up as holes as expected:
“I have many complex polygon shapefiles that have multiple donut holes in them. The files import into iCMTGIS ii without incident, but the areas inside the donut holes are filled in.”
We have confirmed the problem in iCMTGIS II and iGPSGIS II and will have it fixed. Please look for an update of the iCMTGIS II and iGPSGIS II apps in the near future.
In the mean time, as a work-around, you could import the Shapefiles into PC-GIS 09 then save the job as a .pmp file to use in iCMTGIS II or iGPSGIS II.
