Safe Software has added support for IBM DB2 Universal Database Spatial Extender to its complete product line.

Safe Software Inc. announced it has added support for IBM DB2 Universal Database Spatial Extender to its complete product line, including Software's Feature Manipulation Engine (FME), FME Objects, SpatialDirect, and FME SDP Server. The result is a direct connection between DB2 Universal Database and over 100 FME-supported GIS (Geographic Information System), Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and database formats

DB2 Universal Database with the DB2 Spatial Extender enables businesses to store, manage, and analyze spatial data (information about geographic features) with traditional business data. Customers can generate, analyze, and exploit spatial information about geographic features, such as the locations of office buildings or the size of flood zones, and integrate that information with any business data to add another element of business intelligence to the enterprise.

FME Suite, FME Objects, FME SDP Server, and SpatialDirect users can now easily import/export between DB2 Universal Database and a multitude of database systems and formats.

FME Suite is an ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) tool for spatial data. It consists of three main components: a translation engine, a transformation editor, and a viewer. FME Suite also includes developer tools and coordinate conversion support.
