Data Blending Superpowers

FME lets you combine data from databases, static files, big data, data feeds – literally hundreds of sources. And its transformers give you complete control over your data workflows letting you: generalize data, change coordinate systems, incorporate geocoding, restructure data models; detect and clean bad data; and more.

Spatial Data Icon

#1 at Spatial & Location

FME was designed with geometry in mind. We partner with all of the major vendors in spatial, enabling you to analyze virtually any spatial data in Tableau regardless of complexity or coordinate system. You can also perform spatial analysis and display things like spatial heatmaps, proximity analysis, and routing directly in Tableau.
