Best Practice is very important in FME. This article shows how to analyze a workspace using a new, email-based web service, and explains how this system is typical of a new trend for using FME to organize large-scale FME projects.
Turns out you guys can do a lot with FME in 3 hours — especially when fuelled by pizza and beer. My partner in crime @mapgirll tweeted all the Hackathon projects earlier and will post a recap here on the blog soon, so stay tuned for that.

We’re thrilled to welcome hundreds of FMEers from around the world to Vancouver for the next three days. And what a perfect week it is to be here. After a long and snowy winter, we’re graced with this beautiful weather just in time for everyone to visit! Hopefully you get a chance to explore the city before […]
The upcoming FME User Conference seems to me like hundreds of little projects all coming together to form one amazing event. While we put the finishing touches to it, I’m writing up a part of the FME Server Authoring training course on – ironically – Projects! Since Projects are new for 2017, I thought I’d both learn about it myself and write this post at the same time.
Peter Veenstra of TRC Solutions is using the AttributeCreator transformer to automate linear referencing tasks including the calculation of cumulative values to increase the accuracy of measurements in his pipeline dataset. “The AttributeCreator transformer allows a user to create new attributes using values obtained from previous or subsequent rows in an ordered input table,” explains […]
Co-op students have been an integral part of Safe Software for over 20 years, contributing to core FME technology and often returning as full-time software developers. Today we welcome Thomas Alain to the blog, a UFV student who has been a part of the FME Server team. He shares what it’s like to be a co-op at Safe, from orientation week to […]
By now you’ve heard a lot about the new connection styles available in FME 2017.0. Before this release, workspace connection lines were straight. Now they can also be curvy or squared. Starting tomorrow, we’re throwing all of this away in favour of a new, physics-inspired auto-layout. This style will be rolled out tomorrow and enforced […]
This article is a guide to dates for FME users.
When I say dates, you know I mean on a calendar. Because while FME has little help for either your love life or your eating habits (sorry) what it does have in 2017 is the ability to handle more complex calendar dates and to carry out a variety of calculations on them.
The Attribute Assignment setting for new user parameters is something you might not notice… until you go to create a user parameter and wonder what it means. In short it’s a new tool to control whether the end user is allowed to select an attribute for any particular user parameter.
With this you can now set up a user parameter to accept either a fixed value, an attribute, or both.
