working with GIS database?

Feb 18, 2011 at 5:07 PM


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 ( and also is being built as a "data provider plugin" in our other programmer API project, DotSpatial ( - 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...
