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 complete Export capabilities are available in the "Professional" edition only, although "Export the current status of the drawing to Google Earth" is a function available on the "Standard" and "Professional" editions

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

- 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 complete Export capabilities are available in the "Professional" edition only, although "Export the current status of the drawing to Google Earth" is a function available in the "Standard" edition also

- "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)
