Download Plugins for the Importer/Exporter

The Importer/Exporter tool can be extended by plugins. Starting from 3DCityDB 3.0 no separate versions for Oracle and PostGIS are required anymore. An SDK for user defined plugins is included in the Installer package. To use the plugins, simply extract the zip files containing the precompiled versions into the “plugins” subfolder of the local Importer/Exporter installation directory.

The plugin mechanism as well as the different available plugins are explained in the online documentation.

Download the ADE Manager Plugin

The ADE Manager is a plugin available for the version 4.x of the 3D City Database Importer/Exporter and allows to dynamically extend a 3D City Database (3DCityDB) instance for high-performance storage and management of CityGML Application Domain Extensions (ADE). It is implemented based on the open-source graph transformation engine (AGG) for realizing the automatic transformation of the object-oriented data model from a given ADE’s application schema (XSD) to a compact relational database schema (including tables, indexes, and constrains etc.). In addition, an XML-based schema-mapping file can also be automatically generated which contains the relevant meta-information about the derived database schema as well as the explicit mapping relationships between the two schemas and allows developers to implement applications for managing and processing the ADE data contents stored in a 3DCityDB instance.
The ADE Manager Plugin is shipped with the universal installer of the Importer/Exporter tool. When running the setup wizard, you can choose to install the plugin. This is the recommended and easiest way to install the plugin. Alternatively, you may download the latest version listed below and install it manually as instructed in the beginning of this page. The plugin version 1.2.0 or higher requires 3DCityDB 4.0.x and Importer/Exporter version 4.3.x. (Version 1.2.0 | 7 MB) (Version 1.2.0 | 14 MB)

See the publications section of this homepage to learn the details on the conceptual background and technical realization of the data model interpretations and transformations. The developed method generates relational database schemas that are much more compact than that of commercial and other Open Source tools.

Download the Spreadsheet Generator Plugin

The Spreadsheet Generator Plugin allows users to export feature attributes from a 3D City Database instance as spreadsheets. Supported output formats are CSV and Microsoft Excel.
The package below contains the precompiled version and the source code of the Spreadsheet Generator plugin version 3.2.0, as well as the required libraries and the documentation. The plugin requires 3DCityDB 4.0.x and Importer/Exporter version 4.3.x. Note that this plugin is already included in the Installer package. (Version 3.2.0 | 16 MB) (Version 3.2.0 | 150 KB)
