Data management, query and edition

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

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

In addition, the data values can be modified in the palette of the application and there are commands to select objects by Queries or according to the table that they are attached. As a plus, the application also provides a command that allows Zooming to the selected objects

Data structure

The data Tables can be automatically created and structured when importing elements from any data source, but the application includes all the tools that the users need to create new Tables and edit or delete existing Tables. When a Table is modified or deleted, all the objects attached to the Table will be automatically updated

Tables edition

Create, edit or delete Fields in any existing table. You can assign a default value to any Field and select the type of data for the Field (Text, Integer, Date, etc.). As happens with the tables, if any alteration occurs in the Fields of a table, the application will automatically update all the attached objects

Objects management

Automatic or manual Attachment of Objects to data tables, view and edit directly the field Values individually or for a selection of Objects, Detachment of Objects and Objects Selections based on a specific attached table. Direct access to Hyperlink fields from the application Palette

Queries

Selecting objects in drawings by simple or compound queries. Complete queries or query to the current selection and add the result to the current selection. Selections based on a specific attached table. Zoom into the selected objects
