I've been looking into MapServer, but can't find anything indicating that it can connect to an ESRI enterprise geodatabase (version 10.3 or 10.4) for vector data. There is ArcSDE support but it's limited to version 9.2.

Is there any known path to serving vector data from an enterprise geodatabase on Oracle that uses the ESRI ST_GEOMETRY format?


I think you should be able use the OGR connection, for reading ArcSDE. The GDAL/OGR pages for the ESRI SDE driver, tells us:

The driver has been tested with ArcSDE 9.x, and should work with newer versions, as well as ArcSDE 8.2 or 8.3. Both 2D and 3D geometries are supported.

  • As of 10.3, ArcSDE is out of the picture. The OGR test script referenced at the GDAL/OGR page connects to ArcSDE as opposed to Oracle (or whatever) directly. For this reason I don't see how it could work. – nw1 Oct 31 '16 at 15:26
