Students from Simon Fraser University are battling it out to build the best UAV for real-world competition scenarios. Safe Software is excited to sponsor these up-and-coming software developers, designers, and engineers. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology is revolutionizing the way we capture imagery and data. Because UAVs do not require pilots, they can be flown in […]
With the FME World Tour well under way, and FME coin photos starting to appear all over the map, it’s time to cover a few of the new features available in FME2016.1.
This article is going to cover something I never thought would be possible: the ordering of operations in a workspace.
By now you must know that the FME World Tour has just started, and if you’ve been to previous events you’ll know that we always try to provide the most inventive swag of any conference. Well, we hope you agree that this year is the best ever!
The FME World Tour 2016 kicked off today in Vancouver, BC, opening with a keynote from our co-founders Don Murray and Dale Lutz. They showed off some amazing new features in FME 2016.1, a release that proves to be just as exciting as a major FME “.0” release. No FMEWT Kickoff would be complete without […]
I recently finished updating the FME Desktop training for 2016. The Performance chapter in the advanced manual is always one of the most difficult to put together, but also the most rewarding. It shows how just a few small changes can make a huge difference to a workspace.
This post is just a very quick overview of that chapter, showing the exercise we cover, what changes we make, and how much its performance improves. The results? Incredible!
You’ll almost certainly know that we have an FME World Tour every year, where we send Safe staff around the world to events hosted by us and our partners. You probably also know that we always follow up on the latest release of FME with a .1 version at this time of year too.
What you might not know is that the timing of these two events isn’t coincidence. We deliberately schedule .1 to be ready in time for use on the world tour. And, although I don’t usually blog about .1 functionality in advance, there’s an upcoming 2016.1 update that all presenters on the World Tour should be aware of: Bookmark Navigation.
I might not be a pope or a Roman emperor, but that doesn’t mean I can’t create my own calendar. The first month of my year I call Launchuary – the month of the new FME launch. Next up is Trainuary, when I complete all our training materials. We’re now entering Blogch, the month when I realize I haven’t written half the blog posts I planned to and scramble to catch up.
So here I’m going to quickly round off the 2016.0 launch with a summary of all the new functionality that I wanted to highlight, but haven’t had time to yet.
2.5 years ago we launched FME Cloud as a private beta. Since then we have come a long way – we’re out of beta – and we have seen a wide range of customer scenarios, e.g. supporting cloud-based open data solutions, powering an open data store and processing 3D data. As more production environments are […]

Yes, FME can translate a lot of data formats, and yes, it can perform a lot of transformations on your data… but after all those hundreds of readers, writers, and transformers, what if it still doesn’t support the functionality you need? There are a few ways users can extend FME with more readers, writers, and […]
