Currently, you can import data from Esri shapefile (*.shp) files into an xml containing a data for Standart Valuation of Urban Land or into a mif/mid file.
A description of the Esri shapefile structure required for xml import can be found here: vymogi-urban.pdf, vymogi-silgosp.pdf. You can import arbitrary shp files into the mif/mid format. All linear graphic information (texts, labels, ellipses - not imported) will be placed in the mif file, semantic information (all fields of the dbf file) - in the mid file. You can later convert this format to xml if all records contain a data field named ZoneObjectType.
To import a file or a group of files, select the File→Import... menu in the program.
In the opened form, you can choose:
- Received format: xml NDO NA or mif/mid
- The directory containing the shapefile(s) to be imported. Files will be taken only from this directory - no nested subdirectories.
- For import in Xml: a group of files for one ATU code. The form below the list will show a warning if not all required files for the selected ATU are presented, or if there are files with unknown names for this ATU code. - For import into mif/mid: a group of files with arbitrary names. There is no filename control. - Coordinate system and units for shapefile coordinates. The bounding box in degrees for the shapefile data will be shown on the right. For Ukraine, the values must be within Lon(longitude): 22.05 - 40.5, Lat(latitude): 44 - 52.5 If the coordinates transformed using the specified coordinate system and units of measurement do not fall into this rectangle, a warning will be shown on the form.
- Text encoding in the dbf table. As a rule, the automatic mode works well here. An example of Cyrillic text from a dbf file decoded using the specified mode will be shown on the right side of the form. If you can read the text, then the mode is selected correctly.
