  • This presentation introduces two subjects.How to use an Esri XML Workspace as an template to create a more complex Geodatabase that includes feature class, Feature dataset, domains, & spatial domain definitionsHow to start with an FME Workspace template and create a final FME Workspace. This is a trend you’ll see on FMEpedia. We’ll create a template (a starting workspace) that illustrates how to map to a well defined data model, Esri Local Government, AIXM, S-57, PPDM and an example of a resulting workspace.The presentation example is based on the Esri Local Government initiative but could be any example that writes to an Esri Geodb.
  • Just a bit on Esri Local Government resources centre. This contains various example apps & datasets to help Local Government users. There are similar resource centres for utilities, navigation etc. The resource centres include Basemaps & Apps. The basemaps have defined styles as well as Apps for ArcServer to make the data available on-line.
  • Esri ArcGIS for Local Government Information Model includes the LocalGovernment.gdb and map/layer designs for symbology & display. The Local Government Data Model covers a wide range of Local government requirements Infrastructure, Land Records, Elections, Public Safety, Planning & Development, Facilities & Campus, AddressAvailable through the Esri Local Gov. ArcGIS Resource CenterFME can use a Esri XML Workspace as a template to easily create a complex Geodatabase. This really simplifies the FME Workspace, in particular it means you don’t have to define the detailed domain/subtypes or feature datasets in your workspace feature type definitions. Example: Open workspace and show where the XML Workspace document is defined in the Esri Geodb writer parameters.
  • So what is an FME Workspace template?It’s a starting point for your own workspace. Usually is a workspace that is set-up to write too (or read from) a well defined data model such as PPDM, AIXM, S-57, Esri Local Government, Esri Utility, etc.Add reader (or writer) - You then add your reader (or writer) to match your formatNew Feature Types - You import your feature types for your specific dataPlaces to Edit Stuff - complete the transformation mappings Lot’s of Red Stuff - transformers may be dependent on your mappings or source data and these should resolve themselves as you add your format and feature types and complete the mappings.
  • Source data:In this example there are two source datasets: election result spreadsheetsSpreadsheets that contain the election voting results. Could be in any format - although it makes life a lot easier if the format is relatively consistentVoting precinct areasShape data that represents the precincts or districts
  • Database template for the LocalGovernment.gdbUse the Esri XML Workspace as a template to create the complex Esri FGDBORYou could write to an existing FGDB
  • Complete the FME Workspace or Spatial ETL Tool template workspace. Add source datasets (XLS & SHAPE)Rename attributes as needed – rename attributes to match the FGDB data modelMap Values – in this case we’re making the table names consistent for the both the XLS & The SHAPE dataMake sure any incomplete transformers (red properties) get resolved by the correct mapping.Useful transformers in FME Workspace templates are:AttributeRenamerAttributeValueMapperSchemaMapper
  • End result –Workspace. Run the workspace to load the Geodatabase- Choose which poling results you want to load
  • Data can be checked in ArcMap or displayed through ArcServer Apps
  • Bundle everything in an FME Templatehttp://fmepedia.safe.com/articles/How_To/What-are-Templates-fmwt-and-how-can-I-create-one

FME Lightning Talk: Esri Geodatabase Templates FME Lightning Talk: Esri Geodatabase Templates Presentation Transcript

  • Templates & WorkspacesWorkspaces& TemplatesTips n’ tricks for Esri Users April 2012
  • Agenda Using an FME Workspace template to create a workspace Using Esri XML Workspaces as a template to create a Geodatabase Example: using Esri ArcGIS for Local Government
  • Esri ArcGIS for Local Government  Basemaps, Apps and Local Government Information Model
  • Esri ArcGIS for Local Government  Local Government Information Model  Local Government maps use a single information model (data model + map/layer designs):  Infrastructure, Land Records, Elections, Public Safety, Planning & Development, Facilities & Campus, AddressLocalGovernment.gdb
  • FME Workspace template What’s an FME Workspace template?  A starting point for your own workspace
  • Example: Local Government Election Results Data Loading Components:  Source Data  Election Voting Results (CSV or Excel spreadsheets)  Voting Precinct polygons for various levels of Gov.  Geodatabase Template  Esri XML Workspace Document (schema only) or  existing Local Government FGDB  FME Workspace Template / Spatial ETL Tool Template

Kennison Republican 125 31.89%  Voting Precincts for various levels of government
  • Example: Election Results Database Template  Esri Workspace XML schema or  existing Local Government FGDB
  • Example: Election Results  FME Workspace / Spatial ETL Tool Template Rename AttributesAdd Source Map ValuesDatasets
  • Example: Election Results  FME Workspace / Spatial ETL Tool Template
  • Example: Election Results Recorder of Deeds Election Results Will County Dupage County
  • FME Template Templates are just a ZIP file with a .fmwt extension that contain:  an FME workspace  sample data files  any other resource files (i.e. an FME Workspace template) Double clicking a .fmwt file will open FME Workbench and unzip the sample data so you can run the example.
  • Beyond Local Government Data How else can FME technology help me? FME Desktop or Esri Data Interoperability Extension  Bring any data into ArcGIS  Share data out to anyone
  • Summary What we’ve seen:  How to use a FME Workspace template to create a workspace  How to use an Esri XML Workspace as a template to create a Geodatabase  Create an FME Template bundle
