Shape files into Outsystems app

Shape files into Outsystems app

  

Hi All,

I've never used Shape files before.


Can you maybe give me some direction on how to go about importing and displaying shape file information in Outsystems.


This is the files that are in the zip files that was retrieved.

Andre

Hi there!

Unfortunately I'm also not familiarized with shape files so I can only give you general advice.

When trying to consume a more unusual format you should check the Forge to see if there's already a component that does that and fits your use cases.

If not, you have 2 options and which is best depends of what you are trying to do with them:

  • you can find a Javascript library or create your own and use it in your module
  • you can find or create a C#/Java library (depending on where the server is installed) and create an extension in Integration Studio that uses that library. In Service Studio you add a reference to that extension in your module and use it.


Let me know if you need more information.

Since I assume it's from webgis...

checkout this .net library
