For the City of Oak Ridge, Kenric McCay needed to import data from AutoCAD to GIS. His department had never done this before, and they were trying to phase out the use of AutoCAD for mapping. One problem was importing anchors into GIS because many of the anchors were multiple lines. They did not want to spend a great deal of time individually merging all these multiple lines together to form one anchor. A solution for this was to use FME. Not knowing, and still learning FME, he attempted to merge all lines associated with each induvial anchor together. He converted this to a shapefile and loaded it into GIS. The task was completed with help from the forum and from webinars.
