ESRI Personal GeoDatabase in AutoCAD Map 3D 2017

The ESRI Personal GeoDatabase is an Access Database that contains spatial data.  If you want to quickly view this data you can add the OSGEO FDO Provider for OGR.

First download the OGR Provider from
http://download.osgeo.org/fdo/4.0.0/release/adsk/M040/binaries/win64/fdoogr-win64-4.0.0_4001.tar.gz

Copy the OGRProvider.dll into the C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2017\Map\bin\FDO\ folder.

Within the same folder, open the Providers.xml in Notepad.

Add the following XML code:

<FeatureProvider>
<Name>OSGeo.OGR.4.0</Name>
<DisplayName>OSGeo FDO Provider for OGR </DisplayName>
<Description>Read/write access to spatial and attribute data OGR </Description>
<IsManaged>False</IsManaged>
<Version>4.0.0.0</Version>
<FeatureDataObjectsVersion>4.0.0.0</FeatureDataObjectsVersion>
<LibraryPath>OGRProvider.dll</LibraryPath>
</FeatureProvider>

Next, create an ODBC connection to the Personal GeoDatabase .

In Control Panel > Administrative Tools > ODBC Data Source (64-bit)

odbc

Browse to the Access File and add a new ODBC Connection.

odbc2

Finally, open AutoCAD  Map 3D 2017.

In the Display Manager, click Data > Connect to Data.

Choose Add OGR Connection.

For Connection Name, enter: OGR_<whatever you want>

For Data Source, enter: PGeo:<whatever you named the odbc>

MAP3D2017_OGR

Click Connect.

MAP3D2017_OGR2

Check the OGRSchema and click Add to Map.  All the data from within the Personal Geodatabase will be rendered in AutoCAD Map 3D.

MAP3D2017_OGR3

Since you now have OGR installed, all you have to do for each Personal Geodatabase is to create an ODBC link for each one.

For those who want to use this same Florida Personal Geodatabase, you can download it from:

have fun!
