Extract Exif data from Jpeg picture online using FME Server
« on: October 28, 2011, 09:18:27 PM »
Hello all,

This is another article demonstrating how FME Server could be used in manipulating data online (or via the intranet). Obviously using FME Server was described in the first two articles. In this particular case, I have taken one of the pictures taken using my Nokia N8 camera enabling the Geo-Tagging function. I am sure that most of the phones that have a camera and a GPS module could do that for you.

You just have to log on to http://www.serveyourmaps.com:8080/fmeserver/services/fmedatadownload/Topology/jpeg2ogckml.fmw ; (username: builder, password: builder).
Click/expand on Topology repository, choose "jpeg2ogckml.fmw" click on "configure button", upload your picture (make sure it is geo-tagged) then run the workspace. It will return a link with location of a zip file containing the location of the place where you took the picture in the following formats:

Google Earth - KML
ESRI - ShapeFIle
MapInfo - TAB

By the same manner, we could had pushed the data to any RDBMS, GIS or CAD format (Oracle, SQLServer, MySQL, PostGresSQL, MSAcess, ESRI Geodatabase, DXF, DWG or DGN ...etc).

Have fun trying out this !

Cheers.
