Error on duplicate attributes

Dec 1, 2006 at 12:13 AM
From the online maps available through http://arcdata.esri.com/data_downloader/DataDownloader?part=10200 the shapefiles "Country Boundaries 3.shp" you download (selecting country areas) have attribute "AREA" duplicated, and with different precission values.

I've modified CreateBaseTable() method from DaseReader.cs, but guess in a provisional solution.

private void CreateBaseTable(){
//si hay 2 columnas con el mismo nombre salta excepcion.
baseTable = new SharpMap.Data.FeatureDataTable();

foreach (DbaseField dbf in DbaseColumns)
{
if (!baseTable.Columns.Contains(dbf.ColumnName))
baseTable.Columns.Add(dbf.ColumnName, dbf.DataType);
}
}

I don't think it's just country boundaries.

Out of interst it wasn't a problem in 0.8.
