What are the data Providers?

Spatial Manager™ accesses spatial data for reading and/or writing using their own data Providers. The applications can access different data formats and storage systems depending on the spatial data Providers installed


Which are the current available data Providers?

The available standard data Providers for Spatial Manager™ at this time are the following:

  • Spatial files
    • ESRI Shape file - (SHP)
    • Google Earth file - (KML, KMZ)
    • OpenStreetMap file - (OSM, PBF) (1)
    • LiDAR file - (LAS, LAZ) (1)
    • GPS exchange format file - (GPX) (1)
    • ASCII text file - (ASC, CSV, NEZ, TXT, XYZ, UPT)
    • SQLite file - (SQLITE, DB)
    • GML file - (GML, GZ, XML)
    • Raster image file - (TIF, PNG, JPG, JPEG, TIFF) (1)
    • Autodesk SDF file - (SDF) (3)
    • MicroStation v.7 file - (DGN) (2)
    • AutoCAD DXF file - (DXF) (2)
    • ESRI ArcInfo export file (ASCII) - (E00) (1) (2)
    • MapInfo file - (TAB) (2)
    • MapInfo interchange format file - (MIF/MID) (2)
    • GeoJSON file - (GEO.JSON) (1) (2)

  • Spatial data servers

    • MySQL database (1) (3)

  • Image map servers
    • WMS Web Map Services (4)
    • WMTS Web Map Tile Services (4)
    • XYZ/TMS Tile Map Services (4)

  • Other spatial data sources
    • Open Database Connectivity ODBC (1)
    • WFS data store (1) (2 or 3)


(1) Read-only
(2) OGR data source
(3) FDO provider
(4) Background Maps technology

Note: certain data Providers are only valid for some Editions of the applications


What are the parameters of the data Providers?

The parameters of the data Providers in Spatial Manager™ are the settings that the applications needs to connect when reading or writing spatial tables or files by using a given data Provider. Certain data Providers need the reading parameters and the writing parameters, and these settings can be different. Some other data Providers will only need the reading or the writing parameters but not both of them. You will see a parameters window every time the applications needs them when running a given read or write process
