Concatenate VectorDatas

Detailed description

This application concatenates a list of VectorData to produce a unique VectorData as output.Note that the VectorDatas must be of the same type (Storing polygons only, lines only, or points only)


This section describes in details the parameters available for this application. Table [1] presents a summary of these parameters and the parameters keys to be used in command-line and programming languages. Application key is ConcatenateVectorData .

[1]Table: Parameters table for Concatenate.
Parameter Key Parameter Type Parameter Description
vd Input vector data list Input vector data list
out Output vector data Output vector data
inxml XML input parameters file XML input parameters file
outxml XML output parameters file XML output parameters file
  • Input VectorDatas to concatenate: VectorData files to be concatenated in an unique VectorData.
  • Concatenated VectorData: Output conctenated VectorData.
  • Load otb application from xml file: Load otb application from xml file.
  • Save otb application to xml file: Save otb application to xml file.


To run this example in command-line, use the following:

otbcli_ConcatenateVectorData -vd ToulousePoints-examples.shp ToulouseRoad-examples.shp -out ConcatenatedVectorData.shp

To run this example from Python, use the following code snippet:


# Import the otb applications package
import otbApplication

# The following line creates an instance of the ConcatenateVectorData application
ConcatenateVectorData = otbApplication.Registry.CreateApplication("ConcatenateVectorData")

# The following lines set all the application parameters:
ConcatenateVectorData.SetParameterStringList("vd", ['ToulousePoints-examples.shp', 'ToulouseRoad-examples.shp'])

ConcatenateVectorData.SetParameterString("out", "ConcatenatedVectorData.shp")

# The following line execute the application
