Before moving drawing data to SDF
up any geometry errors.
Use the AutoCAD Map 3D cleanup
tools to correct any geometry errors introduced during drafting,
digitizing, or converting the data before you export it.
attribute data to objects or classify the
drawing (DWG) objects you are exporting.
If you create object
data tables within a map and add attribute information or linked
objects to data in an external data source, such as a database,
you can export those attributes. If you classify objects, you can
use those classes as the basis for your export.
- Decide how to export the data to SDF.
You can export to a single
feature class that uses all the items you specified on the Feature
Class tab. To do this, click Create a single class
from all selected objects and type a name for that class.
You can export
data to multiple classes at one time and
combine the data organization in your drawing with your selections
on the Feature Class tab to determine
the attributes for each exported feature class.
To specify the name for the index property
used in export
- Specify a different name in the MapExport.ini file,
under the FDO_SDF entry, where you see Driver:fdo_index_column.
To move data into SDF format
to SDF – Exports drawing objects
to SDF (version 3).
to SDF 2 – Imports and exports
the data in the previous SDF format to and from DWG. MapGuide versions
6.5 and earlier require this format.
Copy – Moves data to and from
SDF (version 3) and other geospatial data stores.
