Learn about the key features of the application

Read and write spatial data

Read and write spatial data using a wide range of file formats and spatial servers

Spatial Manager Desktop™ allows you to read and write a broad spectrum of geospatial data from/to files (OpenStreetMap, KML/KMZ, Shapefiles, GML, etc.) and servers or data stores (PostGIS, SQL Server, WFS, etc.) (Data Providers list)

Use Spatial Manager Desktop™ advanced wizards to define source and target spatial data and import or export parameters

Coordinates transformation

Calculate geometric transformations of the features in the import and export processes

Spatial Manager Desktop™ will calculate geometric transformations of the features in the import and export processes, which will depend on the chosen Coordinate System (CRS) for the source and target data

The user can choose the appropriate CRSs from a complete CRS catalog or from a list which includes the most recent used CRSs

Layer management

Arrange your maps in Layers that can be fully managed by the application

Spatial Manager Desktop™ allows you to structure your maps by Layers whose control is found in a multitude of functions designed to optimize your documents

You will be able to organize your Layers in addition to those generated automatically in the import processes, sort them, control their visibility, etc. Spatial Manager Desktop™ also includes advanced functions to separate the information by Layers according to data values, export complete Layers or control selections or the map view according to the selected Layer

Data query and edition

Manage the alphanumeric data attached to the elements, design and edit the structure which will be used to store the data

Spatial Manager Desktop™ will manage the alphanumeric data which may come attached to the elements in the import processes themselves but the users can also edit the tables structure which will be used to store the data. They can manage the fields according to their own needs

In addition, the data values can be modified in the application data grid and there are functions to select elements by Queries or perform easy Find and Replace processes. The application also provides functions that allow Zooming to the selected elements or to a specific Layer

Background maps

Choose from among a lot of dynamic Backgrounds Maps from providers such as Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing, MapBox, Ordnance Survey, etc., or configure your own maps from TMS, WMS or WMTS servers

Spatial Manager Desktop™ allows to the users choose from among a lot of dynamic Backgrounds Maps from many providers such as Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, Bing, MapBox, Ordnance Survey, etc., or customized maps from TMS, WMS or WMTS servers. These maps will enhance your documents quality and will let the users compare and check better

The map images are automatically updated when the document view changes (zoom, pan, etc.) and the images resolution is automatically adapted to the view size. The user can export/import customized map definitions to be shared with other users

Spatial analysis New V7

Perform spatial analysis operations over the objects in the drawing or map generating new objects from such analysis

Spatial Manager Desktop™ provides a comprehensive set of tools to perform spatial analysis operations over the vector objects of the drawing or map and their attached data, resulting in new objects generated by the resolution of such operations

Spatial analysis operations can be performed on a combination of tables, layers or drawing objects previously selected by interacting with on-screen elements or by using the application's advanced selection queries

Publishing to Google Earth

Export all or part of the elements in the visible Layers of the map and their data to a KML or KMZ file

Spatial Manager Desktop™ includes a specific function designed to Export all or part of the objects in the visible Layers of the map and their data, to a KML or KMZ file (Google Earth) through a one-click operation

The current Layers organization and the properties of the Layers and features are considered when creating the resulting GE file, and this file can be opened directly in Google Earth (if installed)

more info

Search locations

Geo-locate in your map postal addresses, streets, neighborhoods or other geographical objects.

Spatial Manager Desktop™ include functions to geo-locate in your map postal addresses, streets, neighborhoods or other geographical objects.

It allows you to access a text search window of locations and automatically zoom in or insert the geometry of the selected location or rectangular envelope

more info

Task & processes

Spatial Manager Desktop™ includes the ability to save Tasks that make it easy to run repetitive import and export processes

Spatial Manager Desktop™ Tasks are the way the user can save any import or export process and its parameters in order to run repetitive processes for import or export data tables

The user can execute any Task directly from the application or from the operating system command window; this feature also lets the user define powerful batch processes
