Vancouver, B.C. – Safe Software announced its support of Esri's ArcGIS for Local Government industry solution. Safe's FME technology enables users to quickly transform their data to conform to the common information model that the initiatives free "maps and apps" are built around.
Using FME technology, either
through FME Workbench or the ArcGIS Data Interoperability Extension, government
organizations can transform disparate data formats and models to load into the
ArcGIS for Local Government information model, unlocking the capabilities of
the maps and applications that have been designed to assist the implementation
of an effective GIS for the management of various government functions.
"We are very pleased that
the close integration between FME and ArcGIS continues to assist Esri users
with their data interoperability needs," says Dale Lutz, vice president of
development at Safe Software. "ArcGIS for Local Government provides some
very interesting and useful tools, and FME technology can help government
organizations take full advantage of them."
To further simplify the process,
Safe has been working with Esri to design customized workspace templates that
load data into the common information model to quickly enable the use of
particular ArcGIS for Local Government maps and apps. The FME workspace
templates that are currently available through ArcGIS Online enable the
deployment of ArcGIS for Election applications, with more to come in the
technology opens up the possibilities of what local government organizations
can achieve with the ArcGIS for Local Government solution by allowing them to
easily move more of their data into the common information model," says
Scott Oppmann, Esri product development.
Users can learn more by attending
the session entitled "Efficiently Convert Data to Leverage ArcGIS for
Local Government" being presented by Steve Grisé of Vertex3 at the
upcoming Esri International User Conference in San Diego from July 23 - 27,
where Safe Software will be exhibiting at booth 2400.
Safe Software will also be
hosting an upcoming live webinar on August 30 designed to help those wishing to
implement ArcGIS for Local Government applications move their data into the
common information model. For more information or to register visit
