Presented by Robert C. White, President of Whitestar Corporation at the FME User Meeting in Denver, CO, April 16, 2012.
Abstract: Does your land mapping procedure remind you of the Temple of Doom? This presentation will focus on how we used FME Desktop to take textual land/legal descriptions from the State of North Dakota and transform them into real world polygons to analyze opportunities. This technique would work for any of the 30 US states using the Public Land Survey System.
