This project explains how a shape file can be parsed for a high-level dump and construct same dump from Oracle Spatial data. ESRI shape files are a popular geospatial vector data format for geographic information systems software. This project has two parts. The first part deals with parsing a shape file to visualize its header and records organization according to ESRI's Shape file Technical Description and then build a high level dump. The second part involves building shape files on the fly from existing Oracle Spatial tables to achieve the inverse utility of shp2sdo, which is on the Oracle website.
