Using FME to Support Asset Management


Published on

The City of Santa Rosa Utilities Department uses FME for key GIS data processing and integration tasks that support several city-wide asset management initiatives. For example, FME is used to convert data from/to CAD, Enterprise Geodatabase, SQL, Access, shapefile and other formats. FME proved to be a vital component in a recent project involving loading a new Enterprise Geodatabase from CAD and prepping that data for integration with a Hansen Maintenance Management System in SQL for Sewer and Water infrastructure. This presentation will highlight the role FME plays within these projects, as well as other Asset Management applications.
