Safe Spatial ETL for IHS Energy clients

Safe Software’s spatial extract, transform and load tools are embedded in IHS Energy’s web tools.

Safe Software Inc. has just released a new version of its Feature Manipulation Engine. FME Suite 2004 is a spatial extract, transform, and load tool for sharing GIS data. FME Suite transforms data between over 100 different GIS, CAD and database systems.


FME 2004 interfaces with ESRI ArcGIS 8.3 and Autodesk Envision allowing users to read supported formats from within their own GIS application. Users can author new customized formats by packaging input formats with new transformations.


Safe Software president Don Murray said, “FME 2004 is the result of years of work on the user interface and the underlying processing. New custom formats bring the transformation power of FME to a wide variety of users and will result in many streamlined workflows.”

IHS Energy

Safe Software’s FME and SpatialDirect tools are embedded in IHS Energy’s ArcIMS Web Interface as an export module. J2EE server side technology was used to integrate the tools and to add extra functionalities including a thin client, multiple data sources, entitlements etc.
