Grads and shapefiles

Post by Gippox » Wed Mar 20, 2013 4:44 pm

I'm trying to draw this shapefiles, which represents the Italian regions in great detail http://www.istat.it/it/files/2011/04/reg2011_g.zip
I tried with the usual command 'set draw shp reg2011.shp' but Grads does not draw anything. :cry:
Other shapefiles, like admin98 etc, are drawn normally. Do you have any advice for me? :mrgreen:

Thanks

I solved it by changing the projection of the original files in Geographic (Lat / Lon), datum to WGS84 and converting files. GrADS now correctly displays the regional boundary. :) GrADS probably does not like other projections.
