How to create point shapefile

Aug 10, 2011 at 6:27 PM

Hello all

Can someone help to get me started to create a point shapefile. I am using VB.net.

I know I have to create a shapefile, add points etc., I'm just not sure how to go about it all.

Thanks in advance,

Willie

Problem with open source - no help.

I guess I'm going to have to buy a product where I can get some help.

hey willie, another alternative is to pay someone in the open source community to generate the help or source code eamples you need, then contribute that back to the community. then you become an actual contributing member of the community rather than just a user/consumer of everyone elses hard work and effort.

as in any organization its really only fair to complain when you are actually contributing someting.
