Construct ETL workflows that convert and move data from AutoCAD design files for use in ArcGIS. FME's library of spatial data transformation tools enable you to manipulate the contents and structure of a DWG dataset to fit the data model requirements of ArcGIS. Turn points and lines into polygons, preserve annotation and symbology, and execute an array of other manipulations that ensure AutoCAD data functions properly in the ArcGIS environment.
Once configured in its intuitive graphical interface, FME workflows run automatically in the background. They can also be saved for future DWG to SHP conversion tasks.
