  36. 36. UAV-Based LiDAR Data Collection & Analysis FINLAND Ville Koivuranta Sharper Shape Ltd.
  37. 37. Next Eagle® by Sharper Shape  Our service fully automatically detects each vegetation issue that threatens the transmission network. We prioritize and visualize the vegetation observations to create ready management plans and work orders that customer could send to his subcontractors.  We identified 3-5 times more issues in the areas that our solution inspected than with traditional methods.  This enabled need based vegetation management.
  38. 38. UAV Solution  Sharper Shape UAV’s are capable Beyond Visual Line Of Sight flights with up to 1 hour flight time and up to 8 kg payload.  Sharper Shapes UAV’s are equipped with high performance LiDAR, High resolution cameras, onboard computer and storage unit and high precision IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit)
  39. 39. FME in Route Planning  Economically optimized flight routes are created using FME.  The elevation information is sourced from existing point cloud or from national DTM.  3D shape polylines are uploaded to autopilot and the UAV follows the pre programmed flight line.
  40. 40. Customer Data Integration  FME is perfect to fulfill customer specific small needs.  For example one customer wanted to be able to create cross-section images from network and it was done using FME  Also all data conversions from customer NIS system to our systems are done with FME.  FME is used to create PDF-map of the vegetation issues that can be used field personnel to do the vegetation clearances.
  41. 41. Prioritization Problem  Distribution companies can have hundreds of thousands of vegetation issues.  Vegetation management need to be targeted to where it is most needed.  Economically optimized vegetation clearance plans created with FME can reduce expected losses caused by power interruptions up to 3-5 times more than legacy methods.
  42. 42. Vegetation Management Prioritization Handle the areas in the priority order. Proceed with planning.
  43. 43. Conclusions  Combination of these new technologies allows us to take full control of our asset management.  Our goal is to create full turn key solution that is both cheaper and more effective than any legacy method.

  48. 48. Leveraging FME Cloud: Near Real Time Global Web Map Tile Generation for Meteorology CANADA Pelmorex
  49. 49. The Project Produce web map tiles from a worldwide forecast meteorological model called ECMWF. Layers include:  Precipitation  Sea Surface Temperatures  Ground Temperatures  Wind speed and direction
  50. 50. Challenges  880,000 tiles need regenerating every 12 hours.  The maps are time sensitive so the data needs processing as quickly as possible.  Each run needs around 80 hours of compute time.  Their on-premises 10 engine FME Server did not have powerful enough hardware.
  51. 51. Solution  Leverage FME Cloud elastic processing workflows.  Provision FME capacity dynamically every 12 hours.  Leverage AWS services such as S3, SQS and AWS Lambda.
  52. 52. Solution – Dynamically Provision Capacity
  53. 53. Solution – Processing Data using SQS
  54. 54. Cost Analysis  Costs $80 per run or $58,000 annually.  On FME Server to replicate performance they would need 40 engines (~ $300,000) and a lot of hardware.
  55. 55. Oracle Spatial to SAP HANA at Alliander NETHERLANDS Stefan Koster BI&A Architect
  56. 56. Oracle Spatial to SAP HANA at Alliander
  57. 57. The Challenge  Alliander wants repeatable workflows to move data from Oracle Spatial/Esri Geo Data warehouse to SAP HANA for advanced SAP/GEO BI analysis  Departments aligning, GIS has FME already  FME preferred, complex spatial handling  Will FME do the job?
  58. 58. JDBC Technology Preview  Java Database Connectivity tech preview in FME 2015  Configured for SAP HANA  Transformers massage geometry into expected format
  59. 59. The Results
  60. 60. How did FME do?  Complete ETL process 2.5 to 3 times faster than the tested alternative  Advanced spatial handling of FME enables automation  ETL tasks across departments on a common platform
