Notes:

  • 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
  • Some application functions need to access the Internet from the application itself. If you experiment problems in any process, ask your network administrator if there is a Proxy server installed on your network. You can configure the Proxy settings through the application options

Need to have some reference in the drawing in order to use Geo-coding commands?

If the drawing is not empty when 'SPMGEOCODING_DIRECT' or 'SPMGEOCODING_REVERSE' are executed, it is necessary that the drawing has been assigned a Coordinate Reference System (CRS) in order that the application "knows how-to" insert the selected geometries. If this is not the case, you can assign a CRS to the drawing (and modify it) using the command 'SPMSETCRS' of Spatial Manager™ for AutoCAD. By executing this command, you will access the CRS catalog of the application where you can:

  • Filter the CRSs by type (Geocentric, Projected, etc.). The type "Projected" will be selected by default because is the most common choice
  • Choose a CRS by clicking on its row in the table
  • Search CRSs by typing the search criteria in the "Search" box. You can type here as many words as you like separated by blanks. The application will find all the rows including all these words in any column of the table
  • Unassign (undefine) the Coordinate System of the drawing, by choosing "Undefined CRS" (EPSG 0)

If the drawing is empty and has no coordinate system assigned to it, when 'SPMGEOCODING_DIRECT' or 'SPMGEOCODING_REVERSE' are executed Spatial Manager™ for AutoCAD will assign the CRS Code:3857 (WGS84 / Pseudo-Mercator) to the drawing. This CRS is valid for any Earth area, but may be inaccurate for measurements in some areas. If you want to configure any other known local CRS, use the 'SPMSETCRS' command as explained above
