Transforming AutoCAD Data to Smallworld with FME

  1. 1. AutoCAD to GE SmallworldMarcin GoreckiGIS Specialist Atmos Energy April 10, 2013
  2. 2. ATMOS Energy Corporation One of the country’s largest natural-gas only distributors 3 million customers in 1,400 communities in 9 states 4,759 employees HQ in Dallas, with operation in AL, CO, GA, KS, KY, LA, MS, TN, TX, VA.
  3. 3. Problem: In 2010 Atmos Energy decided to use GE Smallworld as a primary GIS data carrier. Existing data was in AutoCAD format  Lines representing mains  MTEXT used for description  Different layers to describe main size The goal was to consolidate and transfer DATA to GE Smallworld without losing any valuable information.
  4. 4. AutoCAD data prior conversion:
  5. 5. Solution: To solve our problem we used FME Workbench  Work process:  Cleaning AutoCAD files (connectivity, correct layers)
  6. 6.  Creating FME Workbench file:
  7. 7.  Loading data to GE Smallworld  Setting up parameters in Workbench:  Setting correct coordinates  Both platforms run on Citrix (setting correct TICS host and port:
  8. 8.  Setting parameters in Smallworld (SW):  Setting the import in SW (4.2 version used for this presentation)  We need to make sure we are in writable mode
  9. 9.  Run the FME Workbench: Check the outcome in SW: Important part of checking outcome is also checking for data in editor window in SW
  10. 10.  Of course the same process work the other way and we are able to transform Smallworld objects to AutoCAD:
