Global Information Systems – Merging CAD and GIS
Global Information Systems used FME to design a system that creates purpose-built alignment sheets for clients.
The pre-built tools in FME Desktop’s graphical user interface were used to create a workflow that reads data from Geodatabase, performs the required manipulating and formatting, and pushes the results to AutoCAD Map, allowing for any desired touch-ups.
FME provides a highly accurate, automated system to replace time consuming manual CAD drafting, expensive GIS options, and complex, proprietary applications. FME allowed the team to leverage best of breed technologies – both CAD and GIS – and provided a customized, maintainable, reproducible solution.
Global Information Systems provides the pipeline industry with solutions to manage asset data, business workflows, and regulatory compliance.
