As the world’s leading spatial ETL technology, the use of FME with PostGIS ensures its seamless integration with data sources and end-user applications, spatial or otherwise. Its powerful transformation tools are designed to carefully preserve attribution, restructure geometry, and reproject coordinate systems to maintain the integrity of the original dataset during translation.
PostGIS transformation workflows are configured quickly in FME Desktop‘s no-code, graphical interface, and for greater efficiencies save workspaces for reuse, easily adjusting components to suit changing requirements.
For ongoing PostGIS database management, use FME Server or FME Cloud to automate data loading, transformation and distribution tasks with job scheduling capabilities, notification services, and real-time data handling.
PostGIS is a spatial extender for the PostgreSQL open source, enterprise class database system that adds support for geographic objects. It is an appealing solution for organizations who don't wish to be tied to vendor software.
