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

Drag and drop spatial data to the maps

Load data tables from spatial files into the maps by dragging and dropping them from Windows explorer. This way of loading allows the loading of several files at one time. Open the files in new maps using double click in Windows explorer

Smart systems for map opening

Smart search technology which makes it easy to find changed sources (moved, renamed, etc.) of external layers when loading a map

Export information to use in office or CAD apps

Advanced export data in layers, selections, etc. from the data grid. Raster or vector copy to the Windows clipboard of the whole map, the selected features or the features included in a view

Import and export processes

Full tables, layers or feature selections can be imported or exported from/to any spatial data container. The import/export wizard leads the user through the processes to select the source and the target and their connection parameters, the coordinate transformation parameters, etc.
