The following information was provided by Greg Krakow, at Georgia Nongame Conservation Section. The attached document provides instructions regarding the installation and use of the free and open source GDAL utility, ogr2ogr, for exporting Biotics 5 data to ESRI shapefiles, geodatabases or tables for local use. The scripts can be placed in simple Windows batch (.bat) files to automatically run using Windows Scheduled Tasks. This process was demonstrated and discussed within the Exporting Data from Biotics training webinar available for download from the Biotics 5 Training transfer site.


Document last updated on October 8, 2015 to include instructions for utilizing CLOB fields in the export.
