CN Rail

CN’s GIS group required extraction of precise track centrelines from LiDAR datasets to help create accurate representations and provide detailed information that affect decisions regarding safety.

FME offered a means of efficiently extracting accurate track centerlines from LiDAR datasets for precision mapping required for the Positive Train Control (PTC) safety mandate.

FME’s breadth of format support enabled easy data sharing between systems and groups. Its automated workflows provided time savings and resulted in greater accuracy, critical for decisions affecting safety.
