    FME Server - In the Cloud and on the Ground! FME Server - In the Cloud and on the Ground! Presentation Transcript

    • CONNECT. TRANSFORM. AUTOMATE. FME Server – In the Cloud and on the Ground! Kumar Pancholi FME Server – in the Cloud and on the Ground!
    • Outline !  Introduction !  Example one Surveyors and Poles !  Example two tracking the Mongol Rally !  Dust off your zipster and get in touch
    • Sterling Geo !  A Geo Solutions business built on the principals and heritage of ‘Sterling Group’ Engineering Company. !  Innovation. Flexibility and an Enduring engineering ethos to ensure what is delivered is fit for purpose. !  Linking data together and exposing accurate, actionable information to those who need it most.
    • Key Competencies !  FME Reseller !  EO and airborne image processing software (ERDAS IMAGINE) !  Enterprise and web data management and distribution software ERDAS APOLLO) !  GIS Software (Hexagon Geospatial) !  Mapping and Aerial data supply (OS, Aerial Imagery) !  Ground Survey – Topo, Utility Tracing, GPR !  Asset survey and condition inspection UAV and GPR !  Online map services !  Web Portal development
    • Company Structure
    • Up and down
    • What’s all this cloud business about?
    • And relax .. The Workbench
    • Project scope !  6 month programme of wood pole inspections for an electricity network operator in the UK. !  2 weeks to stand up a supporting map system and portal to enable !  Administrator !  Project Manager !  Condition Inspectors – In the Field !  Potential extension to include data in and out of the field !  Potential extension to include the Asset condition information !  Potential tracking the surveyor in the field
    • Rapid Solution Development
    • What we did !  Confirmed the FME Server setup requirements and use in this way – many thanks Craig Vernon for his support !  Stood up on a secure portal all the OS mapping – used under licence from the energy company to ensure we stuck to the data licence requirements !  Created a simple portal using Open Layers for access, printing of mapping , pdf creation and pole identification !  Portal was designed for use on mobile phone !  And all within 2 -3 weeks, very fast!
    • Aim was to build a portal
    • Project Activities and facts !  Dealing with a ramp up of 5 – 30 ground surveyors so at anyone time use of the system could vary !  Over the 6 month project 5,000 maps were printed for administration !  The portal was accessed over 40,000 times during the project !  When the portal was temporarily taken down the first call was apx. 8 minutes after this occurred! !  60,000 wood poles were duly inspected and reports submitted in a timely and efficient manner
    • FME Server utilised
    • Will the real workbench please stand-up
    • Workbench copy write and WMS requests
    • Workbench time stamp and map scales
    • Stick it on the Cloud
    • How do you get everyone to use FME? you don’t tell they are, you give them an app powered by server
    • Adaptations being considered !  Attached to database output (condition assessment inputs or outputs) !  Attach a billing system to automatically generate invoice once completed area surveyed !  Route planning to improve inspection programme in future
    • Singing in the rain.. Maybe not !  Having a cloud is brilliant !  Having a flexible approach to FME Server is brilliant !  Walking around in cow fields and tapping wood poles in pouring rain , well perhaps not so brilliant but if we can speed it up at least the inspectors will have a chance to be drier for longer
    • FME Cloud, a Mongolian rally, a Sterling Geo Pi, in a Fiat Punto 1.2! CONNECT. TRANSFORM. AUTOMATE.
