SQL Server 2008 Spatial Tools (aka, Shape2SQL)


Shape2SQL is great utility for bulk uploading ESRI Shapefiles to Microsoft SQL Server when you don't have the budget for a sophistcated commercial product. Go to this site to meet the coder, as we’ll as download his software.

Note that while the software is labeled for use with SQL Server 2008, I’ve used it with SQL Server 2012.
