Getting Intergraph and Esri to Play Nicely Using FME

  1. 1. Getting Intergraph and Esri toPlay Nicely Using FMELou ManglassSystems Analyst II 9 APR 2013
  2. 2. Introducing The Kids ESRI  ArcGIS Server (Planning, Public Works)  Includes Feature-Linked Annotation  Shapefiles (UGA, Assessor)  File/Personal Geodatabases (various annotations) Intergraph  Proprietary .map format (.dgn v7) for each agency  Proprietary .ply format (text polygon output) SQL/Excel (non-spatial sources)  Various spatial information in non-spatial formats
  3. 3. Intergraph’s Needs Creating a 911 map isn’t just dumping out a file  Three customer groups require different .maps  ACCPD/UGA Dispatchers, ACCPD/UGA mobiles, Fire  Modern formats hard to convert to DGN v7  Text files (.ply) defining dispatch zones/beats  SQL Database  Special Address tables maintain verified addresses and location of access for parcels  Segment and Node tables manage road network and routing information  Code Tables (e.g. street) provide LUTs
  4. 4. A Quick Detour: DGN v7 File system DatabaseDGN v7 files .map file SQL Database Spatial Data MSlink Tabular Data 63 layer limit  Spatial info in UORs 32 MB limit (DGN)  MSlink relates map Retired in 1999  Funky legacy issues
  5. 5. Athens-Clarke County’s Map Layers
  6. 6. Setting The Play Date GeoMedia Pro is cumbersome to use with I/CAD, little room for automation and no data validation FME provides validation and conversion paths for all of our data sources  Data is synthesized, checked for changes and verified despite political barriers  ESRI Annotations converted letter-by-letter to DGN  Tabular sources can be converted to spatial data  And vice-versa And we can version product files
  7. 7. County Replicator
  8. 8. County Replicator (cont’d)
  9. 9. County Replicator (cont’d)
  10. 10. Anno to DGN
  11. 11. Anno to DGN (cont’d)
  12. 12. Anno to DGN (cont’d)
  13. 13. Special AddressUpdates
  14. 14. Polygon File Generator
  15. 15. Polygon File Generator (cont’d)
  16. 16. Map Stamp
  17. 17. How FME Returned Our Investment(TL;DL: Very Well) License for GeoLabel Pro: $1,995 / $399 p.a.  Time saved through automation: 2 days/roll ($480) Data collection, validation, conversion automation  4 weeks to 4 hours! (FME gets half credit: $2,340)  That’s per roll, by the way Fewer errors: ≈60 output layers, all automated  Version stamps also reduce testing confusion  Customers much happier with consistent productTarget 4 map rolls a year, but now could do 5 or 6
  18. 18. Where Do We Go Next? More scripting  Continue to logically group sets of workspaces Feature Addition  Add custom fields, functions to dispatch workflow  FME performs ETL, validation, QA, logging FME Server  Offload processing from map development station  Schedule workspace groups for nightly builds  Provide daily graphic-side updates for .map file
