Shell Canada used FME to make important 3D spatial data available to non-technical stakeholders who do not have access to a GIS.
Anyone at Shell Canada can now visualize detailed 3D models of assets in order to make decisions that are heavily dependent on spatial information, without using a GIS. After users select their area of interest through a webmap interface, FME Server retrieves the data content from ArcSDE and delivers it to them as a highly usable 3D PDF.
FME’s automated worklows ensure that users get information they need without straining the GIS team. No additional software or training is required for non-technical personnel, while providing them access to rich 3D visual information for improved decision making.
Shell Canada is part of a global group of companies and plays a key role in meeting the worlds energy demand in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways.
