Automate PostGIS to Shapefile Data Transformation Tasks

Create automated workflows that transform data stored in PostGIS databases into Shapefile (SHP) for use in ArcGIS. More than a data translator, FME's tools allow you to remodel the structure and contents of a dataset from PostGIS so that it will load properly into ArcGIS and function exactly how you need.

FME is a productivity tool designed to take you out of the transformation process as much as possible. Once constructed in an intuitive graphical interface, PostGIS to Shapefile (SHP) workflows execute with the click of a button and run automatically in the background while you work on other things. They can also be saved and reused for ongoing conversion needs.

Download a free 30-day trial of FME and discover how it streamlines PostGIS to Shapefile (SHP) conversions and seamlessly connects the two applications. With support for 345+ formats you may find it helps you overcome many other data interoperability challenges.
