The parameters of the Providers in Spatial Manager Desktop™ are the settings that the application needs to connect when reading (loading, exporting from, etc.) or writing (exporting to, etc.) spatial tables or files by using a given Provider. Certain Providers needs the reading parameters and the writing parameters, and these settings can be different. Some other Providers will only needs the reading or the writing parameters but not both of them. You will see a parameters window every time the application needs them when running a given process (loading a new Layer, Importing or Exporting Tables or Layers, etc.)

What are the data Providers?

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


Note: Some components in the images on this page (providers, names, windows look, etc.) may be slightly different from those that will appear on your computer


Which are the current available data Providers?

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

  • Spatial files

    • Google Earth file - (KML, KMZ)
    • OpenStreetMap file - (OSM, PBF) (1)
    • LiDAR file - (LAS, LAZ) (1)
    • GPS exchange format file - (GPX) (1)

(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 application


What are the parameters of the data Providers?

The parameters of the data Providers in Spatial Manager Desktop™ are the settings that the application needs to connect when reading (loading, exporting from, etc.) or writing (exporting to, etc.) 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 application needs them when running a given process (loading a new Layer, Importing or Exporting Tables or Layers, etc.)


KML/KMZ Google Earth file writing parameters window

Sample 1: KML/KMZ Google Earth file writing parameters window


OSM/PBF OpenStreetMap file reading parameters window

Sample 2: OSM/PBF OpenStreetMap file reading parameters window


Open Database Connectivity ODBC parameters window

Sample 3: Open Database Connectivity ODBC (creating a User Data Source) parameters window


ASCII file reading (import process) parameters window

Sample 4: ASCII file (custom settings) reading (import process) parameters window


LiDAR file reading parameters window

Sample 5: LiDAR file reading parameters window
