As per title.

Can up to date (2019) AutoCAD versions be practically/safely connected to a PostGIS database.

And more specifically does this work well/practically/safely for accessing Ordnance Survey Mastermap data? What are the limitiations?

  • Yes (AutoCAD Map 3D) but you need the right drivers knowledge.autodesk.com/support/autocad-map-3d/troubleshooting/… what version of PostGIS are you running? – Mapperz Feb 7 at 20:15
  • Thanks (we should turn your comment into an answer). I'm not the admin for the PostGIS database - standard coorporate structure (GIS staff != IT staff). Does it make a difference? Can I check this using pgAdmin? Database was installed probably around 2 years ago. - At the moment I don't have to do this, but I'm increasingly becoming the 'please export us mapping for AutoCAD' officer, and I'm wondering if I need to tell my AutoCAD using colleagues about how they should be using their software more efficiently. – Rostranimin Feb 8 at 8:53
  • Without seeing your setup you will have try, if you get an issue report/new question. Try not to get to off-topic ( dba.stackexchange.com might be a better source of answers) – Mapperz Feb 8 at 15:04
  • That's OK - I only needed the theoretical yes/no to begin with. Happy to chase up my individual circumstances alone. I could still do with a theoretical yes/no on the Mastermap question (will be a pretty standard usage in the UK so seems fair to ask this here). – Rostranimin Feb 8 at 18:08
  • fyi MasterMap is GB only.. (Not Northern Ireland) – Mapperz Feb 8 at 19:54
