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)
    • LIDAR file - (LAS, LAZ) (1)
    • OpenStreetMap file - (OSM, PBF) (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) (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
    • PostGIS database
    • Microsoft SQL Server Spatial database
    • MySQL database (1) (3)

  • 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

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
