The SHP (Shapefile) format is commonly used in GIS technologies for displaying spatial information and various vector attributes on maps. GeoJSON is an open format for encoding geospatial features using JSON for usage within web applications. With FME, you can encode your Shapefile features by converting them to GeoJSON for other GIS programs and spatial products. SHP to GeoJSON workflows can run without manual interference, are reusable, and can easily be reconfigured to suit changing conditions.

Preserve and Repair Shapefile Data

FME allows you to preserve and repair SHP elements while you move in and out of ArcGIS without a single line of code. With transformers like GeometryValidator, AttributeManager, and Snapper, you can also add additional information to your final GeoJSON objects. These alterations throughout the conversion process helps maintain the integrity of the source data.
