Safe Software announces that Dotted Eyes in the United Kingdom, a supplier and developer of a wide range of GIS applications, has chosen to embed FME technology in its SuperpOSe product. SuperpOSe is used to process the Ordnance Survey’s OS MasterMap GML-2 based digital data product, and load it into spatial databases.
“This is another example of the widespread adoption of our FME Objects technology,” said Fil Vera, FME Objects Product Lead. “Many corporations are realizing it is much more cost-effective to use our technology than to develop their own.”
OS MasterMap is a very detailed data product, consisting of more than 415 million features in the Topography layer and some 26 million features in the Address layer. Customers can download change-only updates as often as they choose, and SuperpOSe is specifically designed to apply those changes to a customer’s data holding in a spatial database such as Oracle Locator or Spatial. Superseded features can be automatically copied into a set of archive tables, which are maintained alongside the live tables.
Further layers of OS MasterMap are due to be released over the coming months. Safe Software and Dotted Eyes are committed to continually improving support for Ordnance Survey digital data products.
