The ShapeDataLayer class provides access to spatial and attribute data stored in a general-purpose database (such as Access).


Namespace: AspMap.Data
Assembly: AspMapNET (in AspMapNET.dll)

Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public Class ShapeDataLayer
    Inherits WkbDataLayer
C#
public class ShapeDataLayer : WkbDataLayer
C++
ref class ShapeDataLayer : WkbDataLayer
J#
public class ShapeDataLayer extends WkbDataLayer
JScript
public class ShapeDataLayer extends WkbDataLayer

Remarks

This class supports shapes stored in BLOB (binary large object) fields. The internal structure of shapes must conform to the ESRI Shapefile specification.

The FieldList property should be specified if attribute data from the database is necessary (for labeling, quering, or editing purposes).

The extent of database layers is not calculated automatically for performance reasons. If you use only database layers in your application, you should set the Extent property before adding the layer to the map.

By default, the extent of database layers is set to (-180,90,180,-90) (units are decimal degrees). The coordinate system is set to WGS 1984 (EPSG/SRID code is 4326).

Note
This class does not support spatial indexes and using it for large databases can affect performance.
