Yes, using FME.  That part was pretty darn easy.  You may also have some
success (not with the DWG part) using Jackie's FDO Toolbox or SL-King's


I found SQL 2008 to be relatively fast (compared to other RDBMS) but the
lack of curve support and its insistence on valid OGC geometry were
showstoppers for me.

Does anyone have experience with importing spatial data to SQL 2008?
Specifically SHP/DWG -> SQL.


We are exploring the development effort and performance of using
unmanaged SHP/DWG files with alias' vs. importing these files into
SQL2008 and using FDO.


Any input is appreciated, thanks.
