Custom Data Adapters are software plugins that enable the NetGIS MapServer to read data
from other GIS vendors native formats. This means there are no translations required to
use your existing GIS System. See how this works here
Many GIS and image formats are currently supported, including ArcSDE, Personal Geodatabase,
Shapefiles, MrSiD, TIF, JPG, GIF, and many others. Custom Data Adapters are separate
application libraries and can be built to load virtually
data into a MapServer. Examples are provided to assist users with
developing their own data adapters.
Information integration has always been a major challenge for maximizing effective
use of a geographic information system (GIS). Spatial data is everywhere and in
all kinds of different vendor formats. Multiple GIS tools are used commonly in many
organizations to accomplish daily work tasks. This makes it very difficult to create
applications with seamless integration between different GIS systems and other databases.
The NetGIS Custom Data Adapters integrate disparate data across platforms and perform
analysis of these different datasets in relation to one another - no matter where
the data resides, and with no translation required. Your data is always up-to-date,
improving the decision-making process and reducing the cost of business.
