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.
An early adopter of A360, Bonava worked with Safe Software partner SWECO to use FME to migrate construction files from various legacy systems in eight countries and multiple languages into this emerging cloud data sharing platform. Nothing is more important in data management than ensuring people have access to the data they need. Leading Northern […]
Grant PUD (Public Utilities District) is a community-owned and governed organization that offers both electric and wholesale broadband services to 40,000 customers in Grant County, WA. It operates 2 dams: the Wanapum Dam and Priest Rapids Dam, producing over 2,000 megawatts of electricity. As a not-for-profit organization striving to keep costs down for the residents […]
Today we welcome a guest post by William Tober, one of the GIS and CAD experts at MNC. MNC needed to make an automated validation process for incoming files to ensure they comply with a range of business rules. Using FME, they developed online digital data submission solutions for 3 Canadian provinces. Here’s a look at the top transformers they […]
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 […]
When you’re responsible for the integrity of infrastructure like pipes, water mains, roads and culverts that serve a population of roughly 250,000, you need an asset life cycle management system that runs as efficiently as possible. This is the case for the City of Burnaby in British Columbia, Canada. To ensure inspections, repairs and replacements […]
Supported by the UK Space Agency, Sterling Geo have been embarking on an innovative project to demonstrate the practical value of earth observation data. Sterling Geo used FME Cloud to quickly create apps that turn raw data into useful intelligence. Their project has uncovered a way to rapidly deploy purpose-built applications without requiring capital investment […]
The University of Oxford is mapping the human eye, with GIS & FME, to assess the progression of genetic eye diseases and the effectiveness of new treatments.
GIS undergrad David Runneals has come a long way since his internship. Now he’s building APIs to make Iowa DOT’s public data more accessible, opening it to innovative applications. To populate the data, he once again chose FME to do the heavy lifting.
This is a short post about entries to the Game of Life challenge.
If you recall, Conway’s Game of Life is a raster grid where each cell either lives or dies according to a set of rules, producing a new grid to repeat the process. The result is a living grid that a couple of people managed to solve using FME – in quite a different number of ways!
