[fdo-users] Basic FDO questions.

You can just ignore the active spatial context.  It is an outmoded concept that might be removed.  What matters is the spatial context association that is an attribute of geometric and raster property definitions.

The active spatial concept was initially used to control different representations of a single geometric property.  It was useable in the first release of the Map3D's Oracle Provider.  However, the convention now is to just use separate properties for different representations of geometry for a feature.

And question #7

7) Spatial contexts, this one I cant seem to grasp.  The get spatial context
command returns all the available contexts.  The active spatial context,
does this apply to just intersect filters, and setting bounds on rasters, or
is all info retrieved via the schema in the current active spatial context?
and if i set a new spatial context as active, is all spatial data from the
provider reprojected to match.
Also how does this relate to the spatial context association on raster and
geometric properties, can rasters from the same schema have different
spatial contexts?
