July 9 – Safe Software Inc.has announced that it has expanded its support for ESRI’s ArcGIS. Using Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) technology within the ArcGIS framework, ArcGIS users can now directly import, export, and transform data without leaving the ArcGIS environment.
ArcGIS users gain unprecedented interoperability and the ability to read and write to a large number of otherwise inaccessible formats. ArcCatalog and ArcMap users can also directly read and display data in FME-supported formats, without the need for translation.
Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) Suite is stand-alone software that translates data formats, enhances information, and provides unparalleled information access and sharing. FME Suite can read, write, and transform spatial data, including many Geographic Information System (GIS), Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and database formats.
