Hi all,

What is the best approach to save a shapefile using v0.9.

I've seen other discussions but found nothing working in relation to v0.9.
Ogr is something i'd like to skip.

Do i use NetTopologySuite and if so, does anyone have a code-example.

NetTopologySuite for v0.9 uses GeoTool's ShapeFileWriter. Using it is pretty straighforward.

            IPoint p1 = Factory.CreatePoint(new Coordinate(100, 100));
            IPoint p2 = Factory.CreatePoint(new Coordinate(200, 200));

            GeometryCollection coll = new GeometryCollection(new IGeometry[] { p1, p2, });
            ShapefileWriter writer = new ShapefileWriter(Factory);
            writer.Write(@"c:\test_arcview", coll);

            ShapefileWriter.WriteDummyDbf(@"c:\test_arcview.dbf", 2);

Thanks for the example.

Will do some testing. I have featuredata, so a little investigation here is due :)
