Spatial Insights, Inc. has developed an easy to use, menu-driven application used for extracting and appending GDT’s Dynamap data on the fly from within MapInfoTM.
Using the application, GDT’s Dynamap data are extracted directly from CD-ROM, and data for multiple themes covering multiple states and/or counties are appended in one operation.
The GDT’s Dynamap Extract and Append application was developed in response to consulting projects that required the integration of Dynamap data covering multiple states or counties. “We found that we were spending a great deal of time assembling data to form contiguous project areas, and thought that an application that enabled the extraction and appending of data in one operation directly from GDT CD’s would be a real time saver”, said Don Segal, Spatial Insights President.
Over thirty specific themes, including census and postal geographic boundaries, roadway systems, and a variety of infrastructure location and attribute data can be extracted and appended for any user-specified area. The application was developed using MapBasic, and runs directly within MapInfo.
