Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD is a powerful ZWCAD plug-in designed for ZWCAD users who need to import, export, transform and manage spatial data in a simple, fast and inexpensive way, which includes many functionalities not seen so far in ZWCAD.
It comes in a lightweight application that runs inside ZWCAD and allows the user to import and export geospatial data between ZWCAD drawings and geospatial files, data servers or data stores, display background maps, manage alphanumeric data and data tables, create terrain models and contours, search for locations, transform coordinate systems, and many more geospatial functionalities.
Import Spatial Data Into ZWCAD
Imports spatial data, into new or existing ZWCAD drawings, as ZWCAD objects and Extended Entity Data (EED)
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD imports spatial data, into new or existing ZWCAD drawings, as ZWCAD 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 from ZWCAD
Export objects from the drawing to spatial files or databases, and saves their Extended Entity Data (EED) as alphanumeric data tables
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD exports objects 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 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
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD 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.
Calculate geometric transformations of the objects in the import and export processes
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD will 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
The user can choose the appropriate CRSs from a complete CRS catalog or from a list which includes the most recent used CRSs
Choose from among a lot of dynamic Backgrounds Maps from providers such as OpenStreetMap, Bing, MapBox, Ordnance Survey, etc., or configure your own maps from TMS, WMS or WMTS servers
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD allows to the ZWCAD users choose from among a lot of dynamic Backgrounds Maps from many providers such as 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.
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.
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 ZWCAD 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.
Geo-locate in your drawing postal addresses, streets, neighborhoods or other geographical objects
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD 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.
Create Terrains and other related objects (3D Points, Contours, etc.) from 3D data or from Elevation services
The Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD Terrain wizard allows to the ZWCAD 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 ZWCAD 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).
Save Tasks to replay import processes (including all process parameters) so many times as desired
Spatial Manager™ for ZWCAD 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.
Available in English, German, Spanish, French, Russian and Portuguese
The application (interface, windows, messages, etc.) is available in several languages and automatically adapts to the language of the main application.
Pay once, no periodic fees
Application licenses are perpetual and include one year of free updates/support.
