Major airports and shopping malls around the world are using Apple Maps’ indoor maps to enable guests to navigate complexes with their mobile devices. To make this possible, data from disparate sources must be converted into the Apple Venue Format. With its support of AVF and hundreds of other formats across CAD, BIM, 3D, GIS and database applications, FME enables users to integrate and load data from various sources into AVF and produce informative indoor maps in the Apple Maps application.

More than format conversion software, FME has a library of transformation tools that manipulate data structure to fit any target data model. It also has validation tools that ensure an AVF dataset is of high quality and will display properly when loaded into Apple Maps.

FME’s usability and automation features bolster productivity by eliminating code and manual processes. Build AVF conversion workflows quickly using FME Desktop’s intuitive graphical user interface and point and click tools.

Deploy workflows using FME Server or FME Cloud and take advantage of scheduling and real-time event processing.
