In 2013 the geoLOGIC team used FME to remove road allowances from the Western Canadian Dominion Land Survey System (DLS). This enabled their users to complete additional geostatistical analysis, especially in the area of production allocation for horizontal wells. This presentation shows the FME workspace that was used to close the gap between almost 10,000,000 polygons spanning over 1,500,000 km2. Through extensive testing they also designed a section of the workspace to automatically correct for polygons that didn't conform to the standard DLS sizes. Using FME to test the final road-free DLS grid ensured all gaps were correctly closed and no slivers existed.
