OSGeo – GDAL/OGR import BGT/IMGeo (continuation)

GDAL is a C++ translator library for more than 200 raster and vector geospatial data formats. It offers an API for a variety of languages such as C, C++, Python, Perl, C# and Java.

vdPConsulting has investigated whether and how this GDAL/OGR functionality can be implemented in a C# plugin in AutoCAD.

As Proof of Concept II, the download of the BGT and BRK/DKK from the PDOK website has been implemented. Based on a project polygon, a location filter is created and sent to PDOK as a spatial query. The result is downloaded (as a ZIP-file) and extracted into the project folder and then imported into AutoCAD.

The import of the BGT/IMGeo is implemented as a Proof of Concept. Processed to NLCS-layers based on the features. At a later stage this can always be further broken down based on multiple properties. By keeping the fill and outline separated from each other, a simple Layer-command can be used to turn the fill off and switch to a line map. The software creates a set of Layer Filters for this purpose.

In vdPCADdesign, it is now possible to export CADdesign-objects to GML, GeoJSON, GeoPackage and ESRI Shape files. For reading from the same files, CADdesign-objects are expected to write them as objects in the drawing.

Also in vdPClassify it is now possible to export Classify-objects to GML, GeoJSON, GeoPackage and ESRI Shape files. For reading in from the same files, generic functions have been implemented in the vdPClassify-toolkit that read in the points, lines and polygons and create them as generic AutoCAD Points, Polylines and Closed Polylines in the drawing.
