FDO Notes

MGOS 4.0.0 Preview 1 is built against FDO trunk (r7843)

Due to unavailable build resources (the build maintainer does not have access to the ESRI SDK), this release does not include the ArcSDE FDO provider

FDO trunk (r7843) is near identical to FDO 4.1 in terms of functionality with the following changes:

  • Improved WFS services support for WFS FDO provider

Installer notes

You cannot use the windows installer to in-place upgrade an existing MapGuide Open Source 3.1.x or older installation. Only one MapGuide installation (via the Windows installer) can exist on any given machine. Use the InstantSetup bundle if side-by-side installs are required. Be sure to back up any data and applications before carrying out the new installation.

Before upgrading, it is recommended that you take a backup of your existing repository (whether that is through creating MGP packages with the MapGuide Site Administrator or using the provided repository backup tools/scripts)

Sample Data

Extra Files

Due to size constraints, the binary packages for this release of MapGuide omit the following CS-Map data files:

  • USA:
    • NSRS 2007/2011 datum shift files
    • 1996/1999/2003 Geoid height data files
  • Australia:
    • GDA 2020 datum shift files

These extra files are available for download as a separate 7-zip archive:

To install these files, extract the contents into your Dictionaries folder of your CS-Map installation. On Windows, this would normally be:

  • C:\Program Files\OSGeo\MapGuide\CS-Map\Dictionaries

Restart your MapGuide Server after extracting the files.

Unless you work with data in one or more coordinate systems that involves one of the above datums, you do not need these files.
