Filed under: Uncategorized — cgraefe @ 11:11 pm


Today Frank Wamerdam released its FwTools version 1.2.0 . This release includes full featured Windows binaries of GDAL 1.4.0 . There are also C# bindings for GDAL included, which is from now on my base for getting any SharpMap GDAL/OGR based layer/provider working.

Just some short instructions to getting it working together with SharpMap.

– Download and install FwTools on your machine.

– Add “yourdrive:\program dir\FwTools1.2.0\bin”  to your PATH variable of your system environment. Please keep in mind, that this updated PATH isn’t available immedatly.

– In the SharpMap.Extensions projects just reference the following managed assemblies: gdal_csharp.dll, gdalconst_csharp.dll, ogr_csharp.dll, osr_csharp.dll located in yourdrive:\program dir\FwTools1.2.0\csharp

– Just compile and get happy.

– If are your want to use this in a hosting environment and you are not able to install FwTools as described above, then you have to copy all *.dll files  from yourdrive:\program dir\FwTools1.2.0\bin into the bin folder of web application.

  1. Christian – hey, give me a shout when you can… I’ve been back at working on the rendering of Sharpmap, and we need to finalize the code factoring. I’ve got a bundle of code to put back in CodePlex, but it needs somewhere to go!
