Perl extension for reading and writing shapefiles as defined by ESRI


Geo::Shapelib is a module to read, create and write shapefiles as defined by ESRI, using Perl. It provides the Perl binding for the Shapelib library.

The Shapefile format is a working and interchange format promoted by ESRI for simple vector data with attributes. It is apparently the only file format that can be edited in ARCView 2/3, and can also be exported and imported in ArcGis.
