Accessing user Datasets (NL PDOK sample)

In this post we will review the tools provided by ‘Spatial Manager’ for accessing geographic dataset services, both imagery and vector. This example will use some of the datasets provided by PDOK (Netherlands), where you can find open government data... more

Using custom Grid files

Many ‘Spatial Manager’ functions (Import, Export, Background Maps, etc.) can automatically perform a process of coordinates Transformation from the source to the target as part of the sequence executed by these functions. That means that the application will calculate a... more

Overlays (3)

In this third example on spatial analysis using Overlays in ‘Spatial Manager’ we will apply the “Intersect” operator. This operator determines the geometries that overlap in the Source and Overlay object groups. Anything that does not overlap is discarded from... more

Overlays (2)

In this second post dealing with Overlays in ‘Spatial Manager’, we will analyze another interesting operator (Clip), which creates objects from the areas of the Source that overlap with the Overlay. Use Clip in order to find objects that lie... more

Overlays (1)

This post starts a series dedicated to one of the most powerful geometric and data-driven analysis tools included in ‘Spatial Manager’: the Overlay command. There are several operators to apply in the Overlay function, but they always have in common... more


Among the spatial analysis tools included in ‘Spatial Manager’, the Buffer function allows you to generate Buffered polygons around point, linear (lines, polylines, etc.) or polygonal (boundaries) objects. Buffers have multiple applications to analyze objects and their relationship with their... more
