Spatial manager is a hybrid GIS-CAD Data Management Software

Isotech  is the Sales and Support Point for Spain-based Spatial Manager software in UAE.

If you are looking for a light-weight GIS-CAD software that offers both CAD and GIS functions, Spatial Manager is your most cost-effective choice. It is perhaps the only one software in the world that offers the best value for money at a price point of around AED 2000 perpetual license.

The best part about Spatial manager is that it is easy to use and is like a simple CAD add-on software. As a result, you just need few hours of familiarization and training to get started. You can run Spatial manager on AutoCAD, BricsCAD or ZWCAD.

It runs as a stand-alone desktop software also.

It is no wonder that some large organizations like Karnataka Water Supply board, Mineral Exploration Corporation and Rivulis Irrigation rely on Spatial manager instead of expensive alternatives like Civil 3D, Global Mapper and others.

Introduction

General

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD is a powerful BricsCAD plug-in designed for BricsCAD users who need to import, export and manage spatial data in a simple, fast and inexpensive way, which includes many possibilities not seen so far in BricsCAD.

It comes in a lightweight application that runs inside BricsCAD and allows the user to import and export geospatial data between BricsCAD drawings and geospatial files, data servers or data stores, display background maps and manage alphanumeric data and data tables.

BricsCAD import

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD imports spatial data, into new or existing BricsCAD drawings, as BricsCAD entities 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 filter are only part of the application functionality when importing from spatial files, data servers, data stores, etc.

There are some advanced and powerful techniques to speed up the import processes, such as Import-all sources from a folder, database schema or multi-table file and others.

The “Tasks” save all the import processes parameters and options in order to repeat these processes so many times as desired. It is possible to execute one or more “Tasks” at once.

BricsCAD export

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD exports entities from the drawing to spatial files or databases, and saves their Extended Entity Data (EED) as alphanumeric data tables using a wizard, which shares some of the steps with the import wizard. In the same way, 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 entities Layer, Handle and Elevation, the Attributes and the name of the Block references and their properties, the Texts and their properties, the Hatches and their properties, etc. The entities will be automatically filtered when exporting, and all the geometric operations needed to fit the target data format (such as segmenting curved entities) are automatically performed.

Transformation of coordinates

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD will calculate geometric transformations of the features in line with 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.

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD will also automatically creates a new drawing including geometrically regenerated objects from the current drawing according to the transformation between two CRSs

Background Maps

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD allows to the BricsCAD users (from v.13), choose from among many Backgrounds Maps from many providers such as OpenStreetMap, Bing, MapBox, Ordnance Survey, etc. These maps will enhance the drawings quality and will let the users compare and check better.

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 define its own BG Maps in order to access WMTS/WMS/TMS map servers, import/export them and take static Snapshots of the Maps.

Search Locations

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD include functions 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

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD allows you to create and manage Terrains and related entities.

3D Points / Blocks selected in drawing or built from Elevation service providers in any selected area.

2D or 3D Contours. Minor and major Contours. Contour labels. Layer separation and different color models. Contours attached to Data Tables including elevation values and type.

3D Terrain models, using 3D Meshes or other CAD/BIM entities. Automatic image projection and fitting of any Background Map (preset or user-configured) on one or more Terrains in their actual location.

Publishing to Google Earth

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD includes a specific command designed to Export all or part of the entities 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 entities are considered when creating the resulting GE file, and this file can be opened in Google Earth (if installed).

Data structure management and direct data edition

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD will manage the alphanumeric data which may come linked to the entities 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 needs.

In addition, the data values can be modified in the palette of the application or through the powerful interactive Data grid, and there are two commands to select entities 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 entities.

User data sources

Spatial Manager™ for BricsCAD incorporates the UDS technology to easily connect with spatial database servers, or data stores, and also as the way the user can define the path to a particular spatial data file, including their own connection parameters.

UDSs avoid having to enter a lot of connection parameters, which are not easy to remember, and they are stored inside the user settings to take advantage of them in every application session.
