Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

GISCafe’s Sanjay Gangal conducted an interview with Dale Lutz, co-founder of Safe Software, at Autodesk University 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada recently.

Sanjay: Tell us about Safe Software.

Dale: We have been in existence since 1993. We make a product called FME that moves data from where it is to where we want it to be. It now supports  around 275 different formats.

Safe Software’s FME 2011 release offers point cloud support and more.

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

One of the main enhancements of Safe Software’s FME 2011 release (released today) is new functionality for manipulating point cloud data. Many people must deal with lidar point cloud data as part of their daily work, and they don’t know how to manage it. It’s awkward to deal with because it’s in huge data volumes.

 

Other features of the new release: during the authoring phase users can inspect the data. Historically you had to wait for the authoring to be over and then you could look at all the data at various stages. Now the whole authoring stage is interactive so now rather than make it batch as it was before, when authoring workbench scripts you can stop the transformation process to examine the current state of the data.

 

There is also new database support, and the ability to inspect point clouds.

“No matter what the data interoperability challenge, FME 2011 delivers extraordinary new data transformation powers to help users unleash their inner Spatial Superhero.”

“The problem with data is there is more of it coming from more sources. Organizations have to do more with it to make their whole organization run more efficiently.”
