We have successfully implemented Corporate-wide standards for our spatial data through the use of a Standard Data Model, some custom technical tools and a Generic Master FME script at the heart of it all. Nexen Inc. had a large amount of spatial data being consumed by various departments, and an effort was made to try to standardize it to help manage it all which initially missed the mark. The initial attempt led to various FME scripts with varying styles of design by multiple authors of varying degrees of expertise in FME. Management regrouped and succeeded with a different approach: One Generic Master FME script flexible enough to manage most of the data-manipulation scenarios and which also implemented the Spatial Data Standards which were desired into each data load and update. This also tremendously improved maintenance of the ETL environment.
