Raster Data

Maximize the Potential of Your Raster Data

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:

  • GIF
  • GeoTIFF
  • JPEG
  • PNG
  • TIFF
  • and more

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.

Restructure Rasters

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
  • Clipping
  • Mosaicking
  • Tiling
  • Offsetting
  • and more

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.

About Raster Data

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.
