readshp: Code for reading ESRI Shapefiles.

[ geometry, library, mit ] [ Propose Tags ]

Provides code for binary parsing of ESRI shapefiles, where the .shp and the .dbf file are read. The code has not been tested on a large variety of shapefiles so your mileage may vary, but so far it has worked with no problems. At the moment only text and number fields in DBF files are read (the others are stored as ByteString).
