Autodesk uses Feature Data Objects (or FDO) technology to manage live data connections to geospatial data, eliminating the need to import or export data. It allows AutoCAD Map to combine the analysis benefits of GIS software with the flexibility of CAD software.

  3. 3. Objectives  Participants to gain a basic understanding of FDO  To be able to basic FDO connections in AutoCAD Map 3D 2010  To be able to filter FDO feature sources  To be able to stylize FDO feature sources
  4. 4. Agenda  Discuss FDO  What it is  Where it came from  What it means to us  Hands on Examples of working with AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 to connect and manage FDO feature sources
  5. 5. Tell us who you are  Name  What do you do  Experience with Autodesk products  Why you’re here
  6. 6. What is FDO?
  7. 7. The FDO Standard is maintained at OSGeo
  8. 8. Where did FDO come from? Autodesk needed a technology that could provide a way to access many different geospatial data sources through a common mechanism. Requirements  object-based feature model  Supports the OGC Simple Feature specification geometry types  Defines a logical model that maps to commonly used physical implementations  Each data source has its corresponding FDO provider.  Allow clients to determine specific capabilities of a particular provider  Allows new commands and schema additions to be easily added over time
  9. 9. Current FDO Providers  ArcSDE  GDAL  MySQL  OGR (Personal  SDF Geodatabase)  SHP  PostGIS  ODBC  Oracle  WFS  KML  WMS  GE Smallworld  SQL Server
  10. 10. Current Applications working with FDO  AutoCAD Map 3D 2005-2010  Autodesk Topobase 2009-2010  Autodesk Utility Design 2009  Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise 2007-2010  MapGuide Open Source 1.0.0-2.1  1Spatial Radius Studio 1.4  FDO Toolbox v 0.5-v.0.8.2.1  Geomap Systems Geomap 2008  Safe Software FME 2006-2010  SL-KingnFDO2FDO v0.74-0.76
  11. 11. AutoCAD Map 3D  AutoCAD Map 3D uses FDO technology to create a hybrid environment with geospatial features and drawing objects There are 3 main types of feature sources:  File-based raster and vector (SHP, SDF, DEM, SID, ECW,etc)  Database vector and ODBC (Oracle, Access)  OpenGIS raster and vector (WMS, WFS) Feature sources render very rapidly
  12. 12. Feature Source – Raster (Mr Sid)
  13. 13. Feature Source – Raster (DEM)
  14. 14. Feature Source – Vector (Shape)
  15. 15. Feature Source – ODBC (Access)
  16. 16. When to use a Feature Source  Data Sharing

  20. 20. When to use a Feature Source  Data Sharing  High Performance  Central GIS Connectivity  SQL Server Support  Cartographic Tools
  21. 21. When to use a Feature Source  Data Sharing  High Performance  Central GIS Connectivity  SQL Server Support  Cartographic Tools  Rapid Publishing to Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise
  22. 22. When to use a Feature Source  Data Sharing  High Performance  Central GIS Connectivity  SQL Server Support  Cartographic Tools  Rapid Publishing to Autodesk MapGuide Enterprise  OpenGIS Conformity
  23. 23. Feature Layers Process  Connect to a feature source  Can be a single file or folder  Give it a name  Adjust settings (coordinates) Feature source is added to Map Explorer  Add to Map Feature layer is now added to Display Manager.
  24. 24. Map Overview
  25. 25. Hands-On Exercise – Connect to a Feature Source  Open redding.dwg  Ensure Display Manager is selected in the Task Pane  (If task pane is not up, type mapwspace)  Click Data>Connect to Data  Click Add SDF Connection  Give it a name – SDF_Parcel  For source file, select parcels.sdf  In the Add Data to map area:  Ensure parcels schema is selected  Note coordinate system is CA-I  Click Add to Map
  26. 26. Hands-On Exercise – Connect to a Feature Source  Add another SDF connection  Name – SDF_ROADS  Source – Roads.sdf  Under Add Data to Map  Ensure Roads Schema is selected  Click Add to Map  Add Shape Connection  Name – SHP_Waterlines  Source – waterlines.shp  Click Connect  Under Add Data to Map area  Ensure waterlines schema is seleected  Click Add to Map  Close Data Connect Window
  27. 27. Hands-On Exercise – Connect to a Feature Source  In the Display Manager, select the waterlines layer.  Click the Table button (at top of Task Pane)  In the Data table dialog box, select any record – note the map zooms to the objects selected in the Data Table.
  28. 28. Hands-On Exercise – Add Point Data (ODBC) First, we need to serve a database as an ODBC connection  In Windows, clisck Start>Run  Enter ODBCAD32  Click OK  In the ODBC Data Source Administrator Dialog box, clixk System DSN  Click the Add button  In the Create New Data Source dialog box, under Name, select Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)  Click Finish  In the ODBC Microsoft Access Setup dialog box, for Data Source Name, enter REDDING_ODBC  Click Select  Browse to redding_hydrants.mdb  Click OK  Click OK to complete the ODBC setup
  29. 29. Hands-On Exercise – Add Point Data (ODBC) The next step is to add ODBC Data to the Drawing as a feature source  Use the same process to Connect to Data and Add ODBC Connection  Name – ODBC_Hydrants  Source Type – Data Source Name (DSN)  Redding_ODBC  Click Connect  Click Login  Under the Add Data to Map:  Click Edit Coordinate Systems tab  Click the Default Spatial context  Click Edit  In Select Coordinates System dialog box  Category – Lat Longs  Coord System – LL, No Datum, Latitude-Longitude; Degrees -180 to +180  Click OK
  30. 30. Hands-On Exercise – Add Point Data (ODBC)  Under Add Data to Map  For X, select LON  For Y, select LAT  For Z, select <none>  Click Add to Map  Close the Data Connect Box
  31. 31. Filtering Data Sources  By Attribute  STNAME = Brittany Drive  By Location
  32. 32. Hands-On Exercise – Query Features on Connect Use an Attribute Filter  Connect to SDF feature source  Name – SDF_PARCELS_BRITTANY_DRIVE  Source – parcels.sdf  Click connect  Under Schema, ensure Parcels are Checked  Click the down arrow next to Add to Map  Select Add to Map with Query  In the Create Query dialog box, click Property > STNAME  Click the Equal To button
  33. 33. Hands-On Exercise – Query Features on Connect  Click Get Values  Under Select a Property to Retrieve Its Values, select STNAME  Under Filter the List of Values, enter: BR  Click the green arrow button  Click Brittany Dr  Click Insert Value  In the Create Query dialog box, click OK To see the filtered parcel feature source, turn the other feature sources off in the Display Manager
  34. 34. Hands-On Exercise – Use a Spatial Feature with a SHP  Create a new data connection  Name – SHP_VALVES_BRITTANY_DRIVE  Source – valves.shp  Click Connect  Under Schema, ensure Valevs are checked  Click Add to Map with Query  In the Create Query dialog box, click Locate on Map>Inside Rectangle  Create a rectangle around the filtered parcels  In the Create Query dialog box, click OK  Close the Data Connect window  Valves are filtered within the rectangle
  35. 35. Hands-On Exercise – Stylize the Features  Turn on all of the feature layers  At top of Task Pane, click Groups and select Draw Order  Drag roads above parcels, and hydrants above roads  In the Display Manager, select the Hydrants layer and click the Style button  Under Scale ranges for Layer, set the To scale to 5000  In the Style editor pane, click the Style Browse button  In the Style Point dialog, click the Symbol browse button  Browse to, and select water-hydrant.dwg  Click on the WATER symbol  Click OK
  36. 36. Hands-On Exercise - Stylizing  Add themes and styles to feature layers
