GIS ObjectLand processes data organized as geoinformation database (GDB). Basic GDB components are maps, themes, tables, queries, external databases, layouts, users, and styles.
- creation of vector-raster maps with arbitrary structure of layers and feature types in an internal ObjectLand database or in following DBMSs - MS SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, MySQL, Interbase/Firebird, PostgreSQL, MS Access;
- creation of themes. Theme is a user presentation of spatial data;
- advanced tools for spatial data analysis;
- displaying themes on arbitrary scale;
- spatial data input and editing by assigning feature coordinates and also by interactive drawing with mouse or digitizer;
- transformation of feature coordinates and transformation of images
- sewing of separate pages of an imported map into one unified continuous map;
- copying, merging, and moving maps, layers, and feature types between different geoinformation databases.
- usage of tables of arbitrary structure in an internal ObjectLand database or in any external DBMS;
- creation of queries. Query is a user presentation of table built by setting search and sorting conditions, joining tables, calculations and using reference tables;
- copying, merging, and moving tables and queries between different geoinformation databases.
- setting arbitrary links between spatial and table information;
- getting information about the feature selected on the map;
- searching for features on the map by linked records;
- creation of filters. Filter is conditions of feature visualization depending on spatial properties of features and linked table data.
- creation of layouts. Layout is an output form combining spatial, table information and presentation elements;
- import and export of table and spatial information for widespread data formats;
- support of style libraries containing fonts, map symbols, line styles, hatches and fill styles;
- style editors for displaying styles;
- setting for users the access permissions to components;
- multiuser data editing;
- using and editing tables of external database (via ODBC) as linked tables;
- providing automation COM interfaces for user applications.
