Powerful AutoCAD plug-in. Imports, exports and manages spatial data in a simple, fast and inexpensive way. Includes its own OSM data provider


Spatial Manager™ for AutoCAD is a powerful AutoCAD plug-in designed for AutoCAD users who need to import, export and manage spatial data in a simple, fast and inexpensive way, which includes many possibilities not seen so far in AutoCAD. It comes in a lightweight application that runs inside AutoCAD and allows the user to import and export geospatial data between AutoCAD drawings and geospatial files, data servers or data stores


- The access to spatial data servers and stores is available on the "Standard" and "Professional" editions only

- The Export function is available on the "Professional" edition only

- The full managing of spatial data functionality and the background Maps are available on the "Standard" and "Professional" editions only

    • Options to export the Handle, the Layer and the Elevation of the objects
    • Option to export the Name and the Attributes of the Block References
    • Option to export Text objects and their basic properties (Rotation and Height)
    • Automatic complex geometric operations
    • Filtering of incompatible objects

  • Data sources
    • Manage your own shortcuts
    • Access to spatial data files (SHP, GPX, KML, OSM, PBF, MIF/MID, TAB, E00, SQLite, SDF, ASCII points, GML, XML, etc.)
    • Manage your User Data Sources
    • Access to spatial database servers (SQL Server, PostGIS, etc.)
    • Access to other connections (WFS, ODBC points or WKB - Excel, Access, dBase,...-, etc.)


- The access to spatial data servers and stores, the XDATA/Extended Entity Data (EED) and the Background Maps are available on the "Standard" and "Professional" editions only

- The Export function and the Tasks technology are available on the "Professional" edition only

- "MPolygons" are available for all compatible Autodesk products (even on basic AutoCAD) except for any v.2010 product

- You can optionally prevent the automatic activation of the "Geolocation" Tab in the AutoCAD Ribbon, because it may interfere with the functionality of the new Background Maps and other applications or AutoCAD functions (use SPMOPTIONS)
