Teradata GeoImport Data Flow and Component Arrangement

Teradata GeoImport loads data from Shape files like TIGER, MAPInfo, ESRI, KML, and ESRI File Geodatabase to the database. If the size of the row including the geometry column is less than 64 KB, FastLoad protocol is used. Otherwise, LOB connection is used while loading data.
