Solve Bentley Map XFM Interoperability Problems with FME

Quickly create workflows with FME that convert data out of the XFM data model, helping you achieve interoperability between Bentley Map and your other data and applications. FME supports the XFM model and hundreds of other formats and applications including:

  • GIS applications: ArcGIS, MapInfo
  • CAD programs: MicroStation, AutoCAD
  • spatial databases: Geodatabase, PostGIS
  • and many more

More than a translation tool, FME allows you to manipulate data’s contents and structure to fit the requirements of the target format or application, preserving its integrity and ensuring it will function optimally. FME workflows are constructed quickly, run automatically and can be reapplied to ongoing XFM data model transformation tasks, saving you time and improving productivity.
