working with GIS database?

Feb 18, 2011 at 6:07 PM

Hi!

Are there any possibilities to work in MapWinGIS OCX with a map database layer. F.ex. PostGIS data layer.

Or are there any possibilities to work with a mapserver layer e.g. WMS of WFS layer?

brgdrs & Thanks in advance,

Actually our design model for MapWinGIS.ocx doesn't include supporting external databases, but this is being done in various ways through plugins in the MapWindow Desktop application (www.mapwindow.org) and also is being built as a "data provider plugin" in our other programmer API project, DotSpatial (dotspatial.codeplex.com). - Dan

If I understand the answer correctly: No way to retrieve data from a database like firebird, where the vector data would be stored as a blob with the ActiveX/OCX?

I am working with Powerbuilder as GUI and I am using PB classic (because PB .NET is fairly slow), so I am bound to embed an ActiveX.

By the way working is TatukGIS, but it is commercial...
