Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) and ArcGIS Interoperability extension

(1/2) > >>


I have read about the article of the 'Subject'.

May I ask for more explanation on FME ? I know it was not a product from ESRI.

Is it an extension of ArcGIS ? and is it compatible with ArcGIS 9.2?

Can i get some example of documentation on how this application is used from the internet? (suggested link)


FME aka Feature Manipulation Engine is a product developed by Safe Software; a Canadian company. The same company that has developed the universal translator for MapInfo and also the Interoperability Extension for ArcGIS.

The main purpose of the software was to convert data from several formats to several formats. Now FME supports more than 180 formats inclusive of GIS, CAD, RDBMS and also images.

Safe's software FME also allows to manipulate data to perform operations such as building polygons, trimming lines, extending lines, converting 2D data to 3D ...etc .
