As presented by Saverio Avella, Technical Support Manager, Digital Production Squadron, Mapping and Charting Establishment (MCE)
Abstract:
FME has rapidly become a very useful and productive tool for Mapping and Charting Establishment. In the map production environment, FME is being used in a revision workflow. Template workbenches have been developed to update existing cartographic data stored in ESRI geodatabases directly from centreline Oracle Spatial data that is collected using Intergraph tools. In the R&D environment, MCE Engineering section has developed a number of workbenches to automate the manipulation and extraction of various raster & vector formats for an area of interest to a format that can be used for the DND Maritime Helicopter Project (MHP). This presentation will review some of the more pertinent workflows and FME workbenches that are being used in both environments.

  • 1. FMEs Role in a Map RevisionProduction Workflow and R&DEnvironmentSaverio (Sam) AvellaTechnical Support ManagerDigital Production SquadronMapping and Charting Establishment (MCE) 20 April 2012
  • 2. Aim of the Presentation Illustrate two “real” world example on how FME is being used at MCE:  Map Production Environment  Map Revision Cycle  A R&D Environment  Develop an automated means of manipulating and extracting large raster & vector datasets based on an area of interest to formats that can be used for the DND Maritime Helicopter Project (MHP).
  • 3. Map Production Revision Cycle Current Revision Cycle Workflow  Aim is to update the Cartographic Databases with Feature Extraction only the features that have been revised in the (GEOMEDIA) Feature Extraction Database Replica Databases SYNC CHANGESOracle Tables ArcMap(DB Update) PLTS SYNC CHANGES SYNC CHANGES

  • 7. in a R&D Environment Aim: To develope an automated means of manipulating and extracting large raster & vector datasets based on an area of interest and export the data to formats that can be used for the DND Maritime Helicopter Project (MHP).
  • 8. in a R&D Environment (Cont.)  Conceptual Overview of Workflow Creating mosaic of the results and exporting to GeoTiffs, DEM, Shapes Clip the different types of data based on the AOIs. Create and index file of where the data is located.Folders containing boththe AOIs and data to beextracted.
  • 9. in a R&D Environment (Cont.) Workbench Used to Create Index Shape FilesThe resulting indexcontains the X and Ycoordinates ofeach TPC charts, thelocation of the sourcefolder („Path‟) and thename assigned to eachindividual chart. Theindexes are used toautomated the selection ofall TPCs intersectingan AOI (red box in previousslice) (TPC-Tactical Pilot Charts)
  • 10. in a R&D Environment (Cont.) QC of Elevation Data:A Workbench wasused to extractElevation data fromDVOF and compare itwith DTED.In some cases, founderrors in the DVOF.
  • 11. Conclusion FME is a very versatile and powerful tool. From the two sample workflows, it is obvious that it‟s not only for data conversion. If your current tool cannot do the job, look to FME for a solution…
