Solve IBM DB2 Spatial Interoperability Problems with FME

The Spatial Extender for IBM DB2 systems supports a very limited number of external formats. Use FME to significantly increase the number of spatial formats that can be stored and also the number of applications where the data can ultimately be used. FME supports the IBM DB2 Spatial Extender format and that of many commonly used CAD, GIS and mapping applications, plus hundreds more that are beyond the category of spatial data. Connect to:

  • Esri ArcGIS, Geodatabase and ArcGIS Online Services
  • MapInfo
  • Autodesk AutoCAD
  • Bentley MicroStation
  • PostGIS
  • Tabular formats like Excel and CSV
  • KML, Google Earth & Google Maps
  • XML
  • and many more

FME is more than a straight data translation tool. It allows users to restructure data to suit your exact data model requirements. Additionally, FME helps boost your overall efficiency by automating IBM DB2 Spatial database management tasks. Once configured, FME workflows run in the background moving data from source to destination without manual interference, freeing you to work on other projects.
