Any GIS Users? (Geography, GIS > MySQL, etc.)

Post by GeoBea » Tue, 01 Jun 2004 02:37:47


I'm working on a big geography project that led me to the GIS community at
www.esri.com. I would like to extract data from GIS files and import it into
MySQL tables.

Does anyone know how to do that? It sounds like you can do it with Microsoft
Excel, though I'm not sure how. Moreoever, I have Microsoft Works and
OpenOffice.org spreadsheets, not Excel.

Also, I'd like to touch base with anyone who might have some knowledge of GIS
data sets. I need some advice on locating particular types of data.

GIS' forums appear to be dead, though it might just be the Memorial Day
weekend. Then again, it looks like high gas prices haven't stopped the
Dreamweaver forum!

(This message is just a test. I posted on Macromedia's website rather
than via Thunderbird because I was getting weird "posted in the future"
messages. I just discovered that my computer's clock was set to the
wrong month, so I want to see if that fixed the problem.)

Hi GeoBear,
I may be able to help a little, but it will be Tuesday before I could get
back to you. Our GIS coordinator position is vacant right now, but we have
a programmer that will probably be able to help. He worked with the GIS guy
in setting up importing GIS data into a Sequel server database. Send me an
email at this address XXXX@XXXXX.COM if no one else can help and I'll
get you in touch with the programmer.
