3D Mapping Resources

1)
Orbit vector tiled : export only, an ovt file cannot be edited.
2)
Ascii text file : Text files are no GIS vector resources but can contain a list of coordinates and attributes to be imported via import and geocoding.
3)
FME Resource Library, separated FME license required.
4)
ArcSDE : Read only for geometry and attributes, not available for Asset Inventory
5)
Sid : Drivers and support on Windows only. Dependency on the Visual Studio 2017 runtime.
Sid of 1st, 2nd, 3th and 4th generation are supported.
6)
ECW : Drivers and support on Windows only. Dependency on Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package
