The power of the FME platform has made it the dominant technology for spatial data transformation. Today FME isused in the spatial applications of leading vendors and by tens of thousands of customers worldwide across many industries in 116 countries. For example, FME is the technology behind esri’s ArcGIS data interoperability extension. It also powers the format reading and writing in Pitney Bowes MapInfo Professional.
FME is available in a desktop and server solution. (Very fast slide).
Data model problem = schema mapperFormats: ArcGIS & XMLData Models: Electric Office & IEC61970There are BIG differences in these data representations
FME Desktop is designed to help people access spatial data in the precise way they need it. It cuts through repetitive, time-consuming conversion processes and really complex data issues to let users get right at their data.
ATTRIBUTEAdd, remove, or rename attributes Edit attribute data types Merge and/or divide different data layers/classes Join database attributes to feature geometryGEOMETRICAdd notes?RASTERExamples – Mosaics, Raster and Point Cloud merging
DATA MODELThe key to all data translations is in the data transformation. Schema is front and centre and the schema varies depending on how the data is being presented – GIS vs. CAD, or perhaps who owns the data, production database vs. public database. Often there are different GIS applications for managing facilities and landbase and the data is exchanged on a regular basis. Not every detail of the facilities data model needs to be exported to the landbase application. Or you may need to export the data to an EMS or DMS. In the case of Smallworld we often have to transform to or from the complex multiple geometries.Moving data out of a legacy system can also require detailed data restructuringCOORDINATE SYSTEMFirst problem people that are moving data hit that’s universalWW coverage for coordinate systemsUse visualizers to show differences in coordinate systems (vector, raster, 3D)
FME® Server is a scalable data transformation platform that enables spatial data managers to quickly meet diverse data access requirements. The platform offers flexible spatial data services that can help you validate, load and share large volumes of data so people can access it - where, when and how they need to. - scalable data loading and conversion - flexible spatial data sharing
