FME for GIS Process Automation

Presentation Outline: 

Organizations have a lot of data, but it’s often stored in systems unique to specific projects. In reality, everyone should be able to use all of their organizations’ data, using the best applications for their needs. Data integration technology makes it possible to move the data so it’s available where, when and how it’s needed. As the makers of FME, the data integration platform with the best support for geospatial data, Safe Software will give you insights into how they see customers solving data integration challenges every day. You’ll walk away with an understanding of data integration, and real-world use cases that will give you ideas of how you can overcome the data silos in your organization.

Upcoming changes to regulations governing the natural gas pipeline industry will create a new classification of pipeline segments called Moderate Consequence Areas (MCAs).  These new MCAs come with additional compliance requirements meant to maintain the integrity of the pipeline and insure public safety.  In preparation of the regulatory changes, Atmos used Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine, or FME, to perform an analysis to give management an estimate of how many miles of Atmos’ transmission pipeline could potentially be designated as MCAs.
