Entity framework 6 and spatial data

c# entity-framework spatial

Question

I have database with spatial data types. I use database first model and entity framework 6.0.2 and .NET 4.5. When I am trying to use the generated classes I get following error:

Schema specified is not valid. Errors: The relationship 'Name_FK1' was not loaded because the type 'Model.TypeB' is not available. The following information may be useful in resolving the previous error: The property 'Position' on the type 'Data.TypeB' has a property type of 'System.Data.Spatial.DbGeography' which cannot be mapped to a primitive type.

The same error is listed for all tables where I use spatial type. The ‘Name_FK1’ is foreign key relation.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for your help.

I fixed it! Very proud of myself :)

Hope this helps somebody else. So, from the link above (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/data/dn469466) there is this line:

Spatial classes (e.g. DbGeography, DbGeometry) have moved from System.Data.Spatial => System.Data.Entity.Spatial

Before I was getting this error:

The relationship 'IntakeModel.FK_Assignee_HomeLocation' was not loaded because the type 'IntakeModel.Location' is not available. The following information may be useful in resolving the previous error: The property 'Geo' on the type 'ConsoleApplication3.Location' has a property type of 'System.Data.Spatial.DbGeography' which cannot be mapped to a primitive type.

I just had to change this in my Location.cs file:

public System.Data.Spatial.DbGeography Geo { get; set; }

To this:

public System.Data.Entity.Spatial.DbGeography Geo { get; set; }

Problem solved. Thanks for posting that link @Ricky Jones.
