Drag-and-drop for creating warehouse connections

Status: Delivered

As a GeoMedia user, I want to be able to access the different file formats supported by GeoMedia via a drag-and-drop action without having to go through warehouse connection commands, so that data interaction and visualization are made simpler and faster.

Copying comment as suggested:

Drag and Drop for text files and and text file server defenition to be inside geomedia rather than as a sperate utility.


I previously worked at many client sites and from the user feedback they would like to:
•Drag and drop a file into the application window,
•Identify if it is a text file , or csv (support for common extensions. For others there is Text file format server)
•Then show the TFD preview window and application continue from there.

We plan to include this with GeoMedia 16.6, currently targeting Oct 2019.  It will support the following file-based warehouse types:


  • GeoPackage
  • Access
  • Shapefile
  • File Geodatabase
  • KML
  • GeoMedia SmartStore
  • Excel

Requests for any additional types must be submitted as new individual ideas, and may (or may not) be added on a case-by-case basis.

Does anybody know how can we add support for our own file based data servers in GeoMedia 2020 for Drag and Drop ?
