- AutoCAD – Support is provided for reading most versions of AutoCAD DXF and writing AutoCAD 2000 version files.
- CSV files are a common interchange format between software packages supporting tabular data and are also easily produced manually with a text editor or with end-user written scripts or programs.
- (DD) Dump Data Dragon format is an easy to read and comprehend plain text format.
- DGN – Microstation DGN files from Microstation versions predating version 8.0 are supported for reading. The entire file is represented as one layer (named “elements”)
- GML – There is limited support for GML reading and writing. Update of existing files is not supported.
- GPX (the GPS Exchange Format) is a light-weight XML data format for the interchange of GPS data (waypoints, routes, and tracks) between applications and Web services on the Internet
- GeoPackage – This element provides access to spatial tables in the OGC GeoPackage format standard. The GeoPackage standard uses a SQLite database file as a generic container, and the standard defines:
- Geospatial PDF – This element can write geospatial PDF with vector features.
- IHO S-57 – IHO S-57 datasets are supported for read access.
- Inspector – This element allows for the inspection of both geometry and attributes of the connected layers and datasets. The geometry is displayed on the Geometry tab, while the attribute information is shown on the Attributes tab. There are no configuration options for the Inspector.
- KML – Keyhole Markup Language (KML) is an XML-based language for managing the display of 3D geospatial data. KML has been accepted as an OGC standard, and is supported in one way or another on the major GeoBrowsers.
- MS SQL Server – This element implements support for access to spatial tables in Microsoft SQL Server 2008+ which contains the geometry and geography data types to representation the geometry columns.
- MapInfo – MapInfo datasets in native (TAB) format and in interchange (MIF/MID) format are supported for reading and writing.
- Oracle – This element supports reading and writing data in Oracle Spatial (8.1.7 or later) Object-Relational format.
- PostGIS – This element provides support for access to tables in PostgreSQL including those with PostGIS spatial data support.
- SQLite – This element supports spatial and non-spatial tables stored in SQLite 3.x database files. SQLite is a “light weight” single file based RDBMS engine with fairly complete SQL semantics and respectable performance.
- Self Service – This element enables Data Dragon to publish a Self Service Portal on the Geoactive Server. The Self Service Portal enables self service access to authorised data in different coordinate systems and formats, and does not require any further configuration other than the out-of-the-box installation of Geoactive Server. For large scale and/or external deployments, further configuration is recommended.
- Shape – All varieties of ESRI Shapefiles should be available for reading, and simple 3D files can be created.
- Smallworld – To connect to a Smallworld Dataset, the Data Dragon Smallworld Module must first be loaded. Use the Smallworld Module Dialog (in Smallworld) to load this module. The module code is located in the Data Dragon product directory. Prior to loading for the first time, edit DataDragonInitialise.magik on the first line of the file to set a suitable working directory – it is currently set to “C:\Temp”.
- TIGER – TIGER/Line file sets are supported for read access
