Safe Software Adds New Dimensions to Spatial ETL
Vancouver, BC, March 10, 2008 – Safe Software today announced new advancements in spatial data access with the release of FME 2008. The release includes the unveiling of FME Server, a scalable solution for data transformation and distribution, as well as a new version of FME Desktop, the recognized standard in spatial ETL (extract, transform and load). Both solutions add new dimensions to spatial data access, giving even more users access to their data when, where and how they need it.
FME Server is the industry’s first enterprise-ready spatial ETL solution that brings the power of data transformation and distribution to users both inside and outside the organization. Built on a scalable, service-oriented architecture (SOA), FME Server centralizes spatial data conversion and distribution tasks to improve organizational efficiency while increasing end-user autonomy. FME Server does this through:
FME Desktop is the only complete spatial ETL toolset to offer support for true 3D geometries and Building Information Modeling (BIM) data, freeing the exchange of data across more applications and platforms than ever before. FME can now integrate true 3D data with other systems such as raster, CAD, and GIS, opening new opportunities for how spatial data can be used.

Safe Software powers the flow of spatial data with its software platform, FME. The recognized standard in spatial ETL (extract, transform and load), FME is the only complete solution for data conversion. It delivers the most extensive format support for data translation and integration, and provides unlimited flexibility in data model transformation and distribution.
