FME ENABLES GEOMEDIA USERS TO EMBARK ON SDI INITIATIVES

Canada – Safe Software will share innovative examples of how GeoMedia users have used FME to successfully implement spatial data infrastructure (SDI) and other data distribution initiatives at Intergraph 2008.
Dale Lutz, Vice-President of Development at Safe Software will walk attendees through several recent customer projects, including the development of the National Geographic Institute (NGI) of Belgium’s SDI. By bringing data into their GeoMedia environment, they were able to share up-to-date geographic information with other government agencies involved in the European INSPIRE initiative. Lutz will also demonstrate how customers are using FME to bring data from multiple formats, including MicroStation, ESRI SDE and AutoCAD, into the GeoMedia environment and share it with others both inside and outside their organization.
“For more than seven years now at Safe, we’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Intergraph users to understand their unique needs,” says Dale Lutz. “We’re pleased to continue supporting their distribution efforts in today’s world of growing data sharing initiatives.”
Safe Software offers a complete, customized spatial ETL solution for Intergraph users who need to access spatial data in a variety of formats, translate and transform it into a Geo-Media or G/Technology friendly data model and format, and then share out the resulting dataset(s) with users inside and outside their organization. The FME Intergraph Edition offers support for the common formats Intergraph users work with, such as Autodesk AutoCAD, ESRI ArcSDE, Oracle Spatial or GeoRaster, Microsoft SQL Server or Access, and others.
Safe Software’s presentation will be shared at the Intergraph 2008 Conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, June 2-5, 2008
