I have been reading various threads on reading (not writing) an ESRI file geodatabase (.gdb). What I need to do is process a feature class in a geodb and extract the vertices of each feature. I do not need a visual component as this will be just pure processing of data. Looking for an open-source framework I can readily use in my .NET project. So far I have looked at
DotSpatial: Libraries work great for shapefiles but currently no ESRI gdb support MapWindow: Looks like it supports MSSQL, SQLLite, and Postgre geodbs but not ESRI geodbs QGIS: Does have the capability to read ESRI geodbs but the API is currently only for Python and C++ ArcGIS: Using ArcObjects this is quite easy but would like this available for users that do not require checking out a license
None of these have worked for me.
How do I read a feature class from an ESRI file geodatabase purely for processing the records?
