Learn more about the powerful development features of STDM.
STDM is built upon a platform of proven open source components including PostgreSQL, PostGIS and QGIS. QGIS implements the GDAL/OGR geospatial library which means that over 75 vector formats can be imported into or exported from the STDM database.
Data access services in STDM are built upon the ever solid SQLAlchemy library. Developers can leverage function-based query execution; map arbitrary Python classes into a database table or view; leverage self-referential object mappings or even apply raw SQL statement mapping.
STDM incorporates a framework for rapid GUI development from Python classes. The framework enables developers to easily map the columns of an SQLAlchemy object to the corresponding PyQt GUI controls in a data management form
STDM supports multiple points for application integration and customization. Developers can use the extensive provider base classes to extend and integrate custom logic across the application.
