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

Which are the current available data Providers?

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

  • Spatial files
    • ESRI Shape file - (SHP)
    • Google Earth file - (KML, KMZ)
    • OpenStreetMap XML file - (OSM) (1)
    • GPS exchange format file - (GPX) (1)
    • ASCII text file - (ASC, CSV, NEZ, TXT, XYZ, UPT)
    • SQLite file - (SQLITE, DB)
    • Autodesk SDF file - (SDF) (3)
    • MicroStation v.7 file - (DGN) (2)

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.)
