Is here, the Spatial Manager for GstarCAD is a powerful GstarCAD plug-in.
One of the most user-rated geospatial data management and GIS applications in CAD and CAD/GIS environments has been implemented in the GstarCAD software system.
Import/export spatial or GIS data into/from GstarCAD 2018 to 2021 (*), and experience the advanced tools to manage spatial data, such as dynamic Background Maps, drawing Coordinate System transformations, quick drawing publishing in Google Earth, data structures and data grid, queries, layer thematics, automatic labeling, Terrains, Search for locations, etc.
  • Import into GstarCAD from Google Earth (KML or KMZ), OpenStreetMap (OSM or PBF), Shapefiles (SHP), GPS, Points (many formats), Excel, Access, ESRI ArcInfo®, MapInfo, GML (GML or GZ),
  • PostGIS, SQL Server, SQLite, and many more geospatial sources.
  • Export from GstarCAD to Google Earth (KML or KMZ), Shapefiles (SHP), Points (many formats), MapInfo, PostGIS, SQL Server, SQLite, and many more geospatial targets.
  • Transformation of coordinates when needed in any process.
  • Drawings Coordinate System transformation.
  • Backgrounds Maps powerful and easy to use.

  • Search Locations.

  • Perpetual licenses. Pay once, no periodic fees

Import spatial data

Imports spatial data, into new or existing GstarCAD drawings, as GstarCAD objects and Extended Entity Data (EED).
Using a powerful wizard which lets the user choose or select all the necessary import parameters in order to get differentiated spatial information in a CAD drawing.

Batch-import, automatic layering, fill of polygons, blocks according data values and mapped attributes, labeling, elevation, thickness or the spatial filters are only part of the application functionality when importing from spatial files, data servers, data stores, etc.

Export spatial data

Export objects from the drawing to spatial files or databases, and saves their Extended Entity Data (EED) as alphanumeric data tables.
Some steps with the import wizard. the user can choose or select the export parameters to define all the target data among a great number of possibilities

There are options to export the Coordinates, Length or Area, the objects Layer, Handle and Elevation, the Attributes and the name of the Block references and their properties, the Texts and their properties, etc. The objects will be automatically filtered when exporting, and all the geometric operations needed to fit the target data format (such as segmenting curved objects) are automatically performed.

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.
To 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 Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD.

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.

Coordinates transformation

Calculate geometric transformations of the objects in the import and export processes
Calculate geometric transformations of the objects in the import and export processes, which will depend on the chosen Coordinate System (CRS) for the source and target data in Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD.

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
Allows to the GstarCAD 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 the drawings quality and will let the users compare and check better in Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD.

The map images are automatically updated when the drawing view changes (zoom, pan, etc.) and the images resolution is automatically adapted to the view size. The user can take static geo-referenced Snapshots of the Maps, as well as export/import customized map definitions to be shared with other users

Data grid

The Data Grid palette allows you to view, edit, etc. the objects data in any table in the drawing. You can also select objects from the Data Grid, export the data from the tables and more
The Data Grid, which is fully interactive and automatically synchronized with the current drawing, is the main application tool for any task related to the management of object data and linked objects

Like any GstarCAD palette, the Data Grid can be arranged, resized, docked, undocked, grouped, self-collapsed, etc. You will be able to sort data rows and columns, design the data columns you are interested in displaying, use multiple functions through the right button and access the main application commands related to data tables.

Search Locations

Geo-locate in your drawing postal addresses, streets, neighborhoods or other geographical objects
To geo-locate in your drawing 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

Terrains

Create Terrains and other related objects (3D Points, Contours, etc.) from 3D data or from Elevation services
The Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD Terrain wizard allows to the GstarCAD users create Terrains and other related objects (3D Points, Contours, etc.) from 3D data (Points, Meshes, etc.) or from online Elevation services

Customize Contours (2D or 3D, parametric Labeling, etc.), choose advanced options in the 3D creation processes, etc.

Publishing to Google Earth

Export all or part of the objects in the visible Layers of the drawing and their data to a KML or KMZ file
Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD includes a specific command designed to Export all or part of the objects in the visible Layers of the drawing 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 objects are considered when creating the resulting GE file, and this file can be opened directly in Google Earth (if installed)

Import tasks

Save Tasks to replay import processes (including all process parameters) so many times as desired
Spatial Manager™ for GstarCAD Tasks allows you to repeat any import process so many times as desired without needing to enter its parameters again. Manage and execute Tasks in the main application palette
