Although since the first versions of 'Spatial Manager' has been possible to access WFS (Web Feature Service) servers, until now this has been done through two data providers based on FDO and OGR. Recently, a native WFS data provider has been added in the application, offering more advantages and features
The 'Import-all' tool that you can find in the CAD versions of 'Spatial Manager' (AutoCAD, BricsCAD and ZWCAD), allows you to automate the process of batch importing into a drawing from a wide range of data sources. This tool is not new but it is now possible to spatially filter the information to be imported, either from complete folders containing GIS or map files, or from multiple Tables included in spatial databases or Multi-table files
Inside one of the main 'Spatial Manager' functionalities, the ability to import features from tens of cartographic and GIS file formats and databases into your drawings (AutoCAD, BricsCAD or ZWCAD), you can find the option to label the objects as they are imported, by getting the label from any of the attached object data. In the latest application versions a couple of interesting new options have been included
The Tasks in Spatial Manager (AutoCAD, BricsCAD, ZWCAD or Desktop) allows you to save any import process and its parameters and have been designed to let you run, whenever you want, repetitive processes for import geo data. Since it is possible to execute as many Tasks as you want in a single operation, it is very easy to carry on batch imports from different data sources, parameters, etc.
