In the same way as when you define the import processes, you will need to enter all the parameters to access the origin data table, the import process parameters, the coordinate system transformation parameters (if any), the name of the Task and a description of the Task (optional). All this data is saved into the \"Task manager\" as a new Task, until you want to delete it
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 is no wonder that some large organizations like Karnataka Water Supply board, Mineral Exploration Corporation (NAGPUR) and Rivulis Irrigation (an Israeli company based in Pune) rely on Spatial manager instead of expensive alternatives like Civil 3D, Global Mapper and others.

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.
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.
Issue: When re-opening, or exporting a drawing (2013 DWG) using the spatial manager, the geographic system that was applied to the drawing, using the GEOGRAPHICLOCATION command, is corrupted- resulting in the drawing being placed far from it's location, when it was created in ACAD Map 3D.
Thank you for your response Dave. I'm new to ACAD, so I'll have to familiarize myself with the \"evil\" commands. From my previous post: The MAPCSASSIGN command only sets the projection system of the drawings and doesn't inform where the drawing is to exist spatially. My drawing isn't intially set with any type of geographic reference. From a spatial persective, it exists nowhere, so before a projection sytem can be applicable, a geographic reference point must be given. This is typically provided by dropping a marker, of known coordinates, onto the drawing, at the exact desired location...then a projection sytem, working from this known marker point, will provide accurate coordinates across the entire drawing.
AutoCAD Map is an extremely powerful tool supporting spatial projections, topology, thematic mapping and more. But it is expensive at $5245. I was searching for a low cost alternative that provides the most commonly used spatial data management features at a reasonable cost.
Although I have a few wish list items for future releases, I give Spatial Manager 5 stars for ease of use, functionality and return on investment. Combined with BricsCAD Pro, for $949 you get exactly what you need for spatial data management at less than 20% of the cost of AutoCAD Map.
In an industry model, a description of spatial relationship between geographic area features. Area topologies contain line strings and centroids. In an enterprise industry model, the polygons are generated automatically from the surrounding line strings. Examples of area topologies are parcels, land use, land cover and political boundaries.
The basic building block of an Oracle Spatial geometry (Oracle Spatial database) . The supported spatial element types are points, line strings, and polygons. For example, elements might model water wells (point clusters), roads (line strings), and county boundaries (polygons).
Feature Data Objects (FDO) data access technology. An Autodesk software standard and general purpose API for accessing features and geospatial data regardless of the underlying data store. See also feature(s) , feature class .
An abstraction of a natural or man-made real world object. A spatial feature has one or more geometric properties. For example, a road feature might be represented by a line, and a hydrant might be represented by a point. A non-spatial feature does not have geometry, but can be related to a spatial feature that does. For example, a road feature may contain a sidewalk feature that is defined as not containing any geometry. In AutoCAD Map 3D, features are accessed and added to maps using Data Connect ( FDO ) or by opening an industry model drawing or an enterprise industry model. See also attributes or attribute data . Compare to drawing objects .
In AutoCAD Map 3D, any source of feature data that has been connected by means of FDO . In Autodesk Infrastructure Studio, one of the two types of resources created either by loading file-based data or by connecting to a spatial database. Feature sources are stored in the repository either in SDF 3 format or as database connections and contain raw geometry only. Compare with drawing source .
Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata. A standard XML schema for publishing and sharing GIS metadata, released by the United States Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) in 1998. The schema is comprised of seven major sections, each of which contains several individual data elements and compound elements. Depending upon the nature of the GIS data, each section, element, and compound element is mandatory, optional, or conditional (mandatory if applicable).
A computerized decision support system that integrates geographic data, attribute data, and other spatially referenced data. A GIS is used to capture, store, retrieve, analyze, and display spatial data.
The spatial area in which a job can be processed. You can use job perimeters to control where the modifications of the current job is allowed. Features outside the job perimeter cannot be processed. Also, you can define feature rules to be applied on the objects within the perimeter.
In an industry model, the description of the relationship of features of any feature classes, both attribute or geometry feature classes. The features need not be spatially connected. A logical topology connects points with points, lines with lines,lines to points, or attribute features to attriute features. Utility networks are based on logical topologies that connect points (nodes) and lines (edges). For example, a logical topology can represent a waste water network or electrical transmission lines. Also called a network topology.
A software platform for distributing spatial data over the Internet or on an intranet. MapGuideOpen Source is supported by the community (www.mapguide.osgeo.org). The Autodesk version of MapGuide is called Autodesk Infrastructure Map Server. 153554b96e
