Shape files in the SHP format are files that contain vectorial information often used to describe the shape of regions of the world.

The information contained in shape files can be useful to render graphics of regions.

This class is capable of extracting the information from a SHP file, so it can be used for rendering maps of regions using PHP graphic drawing extensions.
