Description

Not sure if this is possible, as it is unclear to me if a user must have a license to use this format or not. However I'm submitting here in case it seems possible. It has been a format that users have requested in the past.

For some reason there are 2 different gdal reference pages:

http://www.gdal.org/drv_cad.html
http://www.gdal.org/drv_dwg.html

Also these might be helpful:

If building DWG into ogr is not possible, it appears an alternative for users is to use a converter tool to change files from DWG to DXF, which is already in ogr:
