Some mapping applications like AutoCAD, ArcMap and Geomedia can connect to your database through Oracle client. Many other mapping tools like Gaia and OpenLayers can view data published by software like GeoServer or ArcGIS Server. What tools do you have?Thank you very much for your reply. I have both ArcMap and MapInfo and I have already made a connection from both applications to the Oracle Server. Now I am facing the problem of viewing the Oracle Spatial data which is stored in Oracle and ways to convert them to both SHAPE files and TAB files. I am doing this as part of a school project.
thing is, most of the GIS data out there are in SHAPE format so does it make sense to convert [between formats]Depends.
