CopyLayer(DataSource self, Layer src_layer, char const * new_name, char ** options=None) Layer

OGRLayerH OGR_DS_CopyLayer(OGRDataSourceH hDS, OGRLayerH hSrcLayer, const char *pszNewName, char **papszOptions)

Duplicate an existing layer.

This function creates a new layer, duplicate the field definitions of the source layer and then duplicate each features of the source layer. The papszOptions argument can be used to control driver specific creation options. These options are normally documented in the format specific documentation. The source layer may come from another dataset.

Deprecated Use GDALDatasetCopyLayer() in GDAL 2.0

Parameters:
  • hDS – handle to the data source where to create the new layer

  • hSrcLayer – handle to the source layer.

  • pszNewName – the name of the layer to create.

  • papszOptions – a StringList of name=value options. Options are driver specific.

Returns:

a handle to the layer, or NULL if an error occurs.

Return type:

OGRLayerH

CreateLayer(DataSource self, char const * name, SpatialReference srs=None, OGRwkbGeometryType geom_type=wkbUnknown, char ** options=None) Layer

OGRLayerH OGR_DS_CreateLayer(OGRDataSourceH hDS, const char *pszName, OGRSpatialReferenceH hSpatialRef, OGRwkbGeometryType eType, char **papszOptions)

This function attempts to create a new layer on the data source with the indicated name, coordinate system, geometry type.

The papszOptions argument can be used to control driver specific creation options. These options are normally documented in the format specific documentation.

Deprecated Use GDALDatasetCreateLayer() in GDAL 2.0

Parameters:
  • hDS – The dataset handle.pszName: the name for the new layer. This should ideally not match any existing layer on the datasource.

  • hSpatialRef – handle to the coordinate system to use for the new layer, or NULL if no coordinate system is available. The driver might only increase the reference counter of the object to take ownership, and not make a full copy, so do not use OSRDestroySpatialReference(), but OSRRelease() instead when you are done with the object.

  • eType – the geometry type for the layer. Use wkbUnknown if there are no constraints on the types geometry to be written.

  • papszOptions – a StringList of name=value options. Options are driver specific, and driver information can be found at the following url:http://www.gdal.org/ogr_formats.html

Returns:

NULL is returned on failure, or a new OGRLayer handle on success.

Return type:

OGRLayerH

DeleteLayer(DataSource self, value) OGRErr

ExecuteSQL(DataSource self, char const * statement, Geometry spatialFilter=None, char const * dialect="") Layer

OGRLayerH OGR_DS_ExecuteSQL(OGRDataSourceH hDS, const char *pszStatement, OGRGeometryH hSpatialFilter, const char *pszDialect)

Execute an SQL statement against the data store.

The result of an SQL query is either NULL for statements that are in error, or that have no results set, or an OGRLayer handle representing a results set from the query. Note that this OGRLayer is in addition to the layers in the data store and must be destroyed with OGR_DS_ReleaseResultSet() before the data source is closed (destroyed).

For more information on the SQL dialect supported internally by OGR review theOGR SQL document. Some drivers (i.e. Oracle and PostGIS) pass the SQL directly through to the underlying RDBMS.

TheSQLITE dialect can also be used.

Deprecated Use GDALDatasetExecuteSQL() in GDAL 2.0

Parameters:
  • hDS – handle to the data source on which the SQL query is executed.

  • pszStatement – the SQL statement to execute.

  • hSpatialFilter – handle to a geometry which represents a spatial filter. Can be NULL.

  • pszDialect – allows control of the statement dialect. If set to NULL, the OGR SQL engine will be used, except for RDBMS drivers that will use their dedicated SQL engine, unless OGRSQL is explicitly passed as the dialect. The SQLITE dialect can also be used.

Returns:

a handle to a OGRLayer containing the results of the query. Deallocate with OGR_DS_ReleaseResultSet().

Return type:

OGRLayerH

Deprecated Use GDALGetDatasetDriver() in GDAL 2.0

Parameters:

hDS – handle to the datasource

Parameters:
  • hDS – handle to the data source against which to test the capability.

GetNativeData(Feature self) char const *

const char* OGR_F_GetNativeData(OGRFeatureH hFeat)

Returns the native data for the feature.

The native data is the representation in a “natural” form that comes from the driver that created this feature, or that is aimed at an output driver. The native data may be in different format, which is indicated by OGR_F_GetNativeMediaType().

Note that most drivers do not support storing the native data in the feature object, and if they do, generally the NATIVE_DATA open option must be passed at dataset opening.

The “native data” does not imply it is something more performant or powerful than what can be obtained with the rest of the API, but it may be useful in round-tripping scenarios where some characteristics of the underlying format are not captured otherwise by the OGR abstraction.

This function is the same as the C++ method OGRFeature::GetNativeData().

New in version 2.1.

Parameters:

hFeat – handle to the feature.

Returns:

a string with the native data, or NULL if there is none.

Return type:

str

This function is the same as the C function OGR_F_GetNativeMediaType().

New in version 2.1.

Parameters:

hFeat – handle to the feature.

SetDefault(FieldDefn self, char const * pszValue)

void OGR_Fld_SetDefault(OGRFieldDefnH hDefn, const char *pszDefault)

Set default field value.

The default field value is taken into account by drivers (generally those with a SQL interface) that support it at field creation time. OGR will generally not automatically set the default field value to null fields by itself when calling OGRFeature::CreateFeature() / OGRFeature::SetFeature(), but will let the low-level layers to do the job. So retrieving the feature from the layer is recommended.

The accepted values are NULL, a numeric value, a literal value enclosed between single quote characters (and inner single quote characters escaped by repetition of the single quote character), CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, CURRENT_TIME, CURRENT_DATE or a driver specific expression (that might be ignored by other drivers). For a datetime literal value, format should be ‘YYYY/MM/DD HH:MM:SS[.sss]’ (considered as UTC time).
