Using FME Server workspaces and the FME Server REST API, it is possible to implement simple web applications easily while leveraging existing server infrastructure with little to no server-side programming.
The City of Austin is able to handle a high volume of requests for zoning verification letters using a combination of automated processes driven by FME Server and manual validation.
A number of FME Server workspaces are used to present a front-end web user interface for GIS analysts to determine the zoning information for a parcel, make corrections if necessary, and generate a signed letter in PDF format for delivery to the customer.
The application is designed to be easily configurable by non-programmers and uses no other server infrastructure than FME Server itself.
