Share raster data with anyone using FME's tools to manipulate its format, size, and structure to achieve the best results in a variety of applications.
Read and Write Common Raster Formats
FME supports many commonly used open and proprietary rasters such as:
Combined with its support for GIS, CAD, database, BIM, point cloud and many other data types, FME gives you the power to leverage raster data in different systems and capacities.
Use FME's raster transformation tools to go beyond straight format conversion and efficiently manipulate the files to suit the specific requirements of their intended purpose. For example, execute tasks like:
Reprojection between thousands of coordinate systems
An FME workspace that tiles ECW images as it converts them to GeoTIFF.
Integrate Raster Files with Other Datasets
Use FME to convert, transform and Integrate raster data with other datasets including CAD, GIS, BIM, and point clouds to make visually informative mashups for modeling purposes.

Create Raster Data Delivery Services
Use the automation of FME Server or FME Cloud to implement a raster data delivery service through a web map tile cache or self serve data transformation and access portal.
Because of its ability to represent continuous surfaces, raster data is often used as a component of intense spatial analysis. The large number of different raster formats makes datasets difficult to share, particularly when an application also has different structural requirements. FME offers a solution to ensuring this carefully collected imagery can be distributed for use by all stakeholders in their system of choice.
This webinar builds on some of the concepts outlined in the blog post 17 Ways to be a Raster Master. Through 5 real world examples the discussion outlines several applications of raster data transformation with FME, including:
extracting information from rasters, including numerical expressions
storing rasters in databases
