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


What are the data Providers?

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD accesses spatial data for importing and/or exporting 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™ for BricsCAD 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)
    • Esri ASCII Grid file - (ASC, ASCII) (1)
    • ASCII text file - (ASC, CSV, NEZ, TXT, XYZ, UPT)

    • 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)

    • Raster image file - (TIF, PNG, JPG, JPEG, TIFF) (1) (6)
      • Georeference sources - (GeoTIFF, World files, Google Earth .GEPRINT, etc.)

  • Spatial data servers
    • PostGIS database
    • Microsoft SQL Server Spatial database
    • 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)
    • WFS data store (FDO) (1) (3) (5)
    • WFS data store (OGR) (1) (2) (5)


(1) Read-only
(2) OGR data source
(3) FDO provider
(4) Background Maps technology
(5) DEPRECATED - Whenever possible use the native WFS data provider
(6) Professional Edition only

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™ for BricsCAD are the settings that the application needs to connect when reading (importing) or writing (exporting) 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 import or export process


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


Single image Raster Provider parameters window

Sample 5: Raster image file reading Provider parameters window


LiDAR file reading parameters window

Sample 6: LiDAR file reading parameters window
