Exporting DWG Data to an FDO Data Store
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

To export DWG data to Oracle:

  1. Connect to the Oracle data store to which you want to move the data.
  2. Before moving drawing data to Oracle, do the following to your DWG drawing objects:
    • Assign a coordinate system. This lets you position your data accurately in a real-world geographic location and align imported survey or GPS point data. Once you assign a coordinate system, you can convert to a different system when you export.
    • Clean up any geometry errors. Use the AutoCAD Map 3D cleanup tools to correct any errors introduced during drafting, digitizing, or converting the data.
  3. In the Tool-based Ribbon Workspace, click Output tab Map Data Transfer panel To FDO Connection.
  4. In the dialog box that appears, choose the Oracle connection for the export and click OK.
  5. On the Selection tab of the Map Export dialog box, specify which objects to export.

    This tab determines how items are selected for export, and not how they are organized in their exported form. You specify how to organize the exported material on the Feature Class tab.

  6. On the Feature Class tab, specify which object properties and attributes to export to feature class attributes.

    All attributes you specify here will be included in all the resulting features you create in Oracle. For information on how the choices on this tab determine the properties of the exported feature class, see Exporting to Multiple Classes.

  7. On the Options tab specify whether to convert the coordinate system during the export process and choose the coordinate system. Specify whether to treat closed polylines as polygons when you export.
  8. Specify how to create classes in the Oracle data store.
    • To create a single feature class containing all the items you selected on the Selection tab, click Create a single class from all exported objects and type a name for that class.
    • To create multiple feature classes for the items you selected on the Selection tab, click Create multiple classes based on a drawing object and specify an “auto-classification” method

      For information about these methods, see Exporting to Multiple Classes.

  9. To change the automatically assigned class names, click the Feature Class field and edit the names as needed, then click OK.
  10. Click Save.

To export DWG data to ESRI ArcSDE:

  1. Query the data you want from the DWG drawing into your map.
  2. Connect to the ESRI ArcSDE data store to which you want to move the data.
  3. Before moving drawing data to ESRI ArcSDE, do the following to your DWG drawing objects:
    • Assign a coordinate system. This lets you position your data accurately in a real-world geographic location and align imported survey or GPS point data. Once you assign a coordinate system, you can convert to a different system when you export.
    • Clean up any geometry errors. Use the AutoCAD Map 3D cleanup tools to correct any errors introduced during drafting, digitizing, or converting the data.
  4. In the Tool-based Ribbon Workspace, click Output tab Map Data Transfer panel To FDO Connection.
  5. In the dialog box that appears, choose the data source for the export and click OK.
  6. On the Selection tab of the Map Export dialog box, specify which objects to export.

    This tab determines how items are selected for export, and not how they are organized in their exported form. You specify how to organize the exported material on the Feature Class tab.

  7. On the Feature Class tab, specify which object properties and attributes to export to feature class attributes. Note that you cannot create or modify ArcSDE schemas. You can only map object properties and attributes to existing feature class attributes.

    All attributes you specify here are included in all the resulting features you export to ESRI ArcSDE. For information on how the choices on this tab determine the properties of the exported feature class, see Exporting to Multiple Classes.

  8. On the Options tab, specify whether to convert the coordinate system during the export process and choose the coordinate system. Specify whether to treat closed polylines as polygons when you export.
  9. Click Save.
