Shapefile error

by AndyAmphlett » Sun Jan 28, 2018 12:18 pm

Hi Tim,

when I download a shapefile (OS GB, polygon format) for this query - https://database.bsbi.org/search.php#qu ... 12a269bc80 - the zip file, when unzipped, is empty. Could you investigate?

Thanks,

Andy.

Tom,

shapefiles download ok using a similar query, but for a single vc. Is the problem to do with the file size for all GB? - though it has been ok in the past.

Andy.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for posting about this. It was difficult to track down the problem, because like you I'd assumed that it was related to the size of the query. It actually appears to have been a problem with grouping by grid-square, that only appeared in some circumstances.

I think the issue is fixed now, but will investigate further tomorrow.
