[postgis-users] Editing with arcgis without ArcSDE

Hi Rob,

                I’ve had some luck with ST-Links with 9.3.1, although have
yet to test it in detail, and probably won’t until we upgrade to 10.1.  Some
tables loaded, and were editable, others would not load.  When I used
earlier generations of software for linking ArcMap and PostGIS,  I remember
that one thing to check for with respect to ArcGIS compatibility in general
is to ensure your integers are not 8-byte as there is no corresponding type
in ArcMap.  Most integers can safely be re-cast.  There may be other
unsupported field types as well; I don’t know if numeric falls in this
category, AFAIK ArcMap has no equivalent.  One way to test would be to start
with a simple table, add fields/field types incrementally, and figure out
where it breaks.

Subject: [postgis-users] Editing with arcgis without ArcSDE




I am trying to find a way to edit postgresql geospatial data with ArcGIS but
without ArcSDE.


I have found ST-LInks SpatialKit
(http://www.st-links.com/Pages/default.aspx) which I have installed on
ArcGIS 9.3.1 and on another PC with ArcGIS 10. After successfully installing
I can´t load a sinlge layer into ArcMap!!....always an error message which
cannot be clicked off or ArcGIS Crashes!!! Really rubbish software, and they
want people to pay for it!?!


Anyway. does anyone else know of any other software tools that enable
connections with ArcGIS for editing geometries?


Thanks for any tips,
