Converting MXD to QGIS Project File

On Wednesday, Allan Maungu announced MXD2QGS, a converter that exports layers from an Arcmap 10 document into a Quantum GIS project file. The tool is built as an ArcToolbox and can be downloaded from the blog.

I’d be very interested to hear whether this tool works for you.

    Its a cool idea and it works perfectly for shapefiles on my local system. I also have an SDE database with my data stored using PostGIS geometries, as expected that didn’t work. That’s unfortunate as our ArcGIS and QGIS users pull data from that same DB, it would have been great to find a tool which could convert our ArcMap mxds to qgis project files.

    Still great little script!
