3DCityDB Importer/Exporter 1.4.0 for PostGIS released
The 3D City Database Importer/Exporter version 1.4.0-postgis-beta has been released today and is available for download from the Files section.
We are proud to announce that this is the first version of the Importer/Exporter tool supporting PostgreSQL/PostGIS. It was ported from the Oracle version and supports all features except from the Oracle workspace management. Existing plugins were also translated and are available from the Plugins section in the Wiki.
An introduction to the PostGIS port is given in a tutorial document which can be downloaded from the Documents section. This introduction also contains a how-to for setting up the 3D City Database on PostgreSQL/PostGIS. Additional documents provide detailed insights on the conversion of Oracle-specific PL/SQL scripts and Java classes to PostgreSQL/PostGIS. For general guidance and instructions regarding the 3D City Database and the Importer/Exporter tool, please refer to the 3D City Database documentation and the recent addendum to be found here.
Please note that this release is still a beta version. Even though it was tested thoroughly with various datasets of different size and content we cannot guarantee that no errors occur during imports and exports. It is strongly recommended running the PostGIS port in a dedicated testing environment first.
See the Changelog for more details.
The 3D City Database version 2.0.6-postgis-beta is a mandatory dependency of the Importer/Exporter version 1.4.0-postgis-beta.
