1Spatial hosted its very own World Tour, featuring FME during the month of May 2023. We kick-started this epic event in Australia, followed by Singapore, France, US and the UK!

During this event, we heard about the importance of foundation data and how customers trust 1Spatial’s wide range of products and solutions. We learn how they are being used by clients all around the world and how they are saving time and money.

In the following weeks/months, we will be sharing a series of presentations from the 1Spatial world tour. So stay tuned for insightful updates!

Building your data foundations

We are thrilled to share with you Bob Chell, 1Spatial's Chief Product Officer (CPO) from the UK presentation talking about the 1Spatial Products and how they are being used around the world.

An FME journey through NBA Fantasy

Michael Studdert showcased his journey through FME by presenting his much more optimised, automated workflow that provides statistical analysis for NBA Fantasy, replacing CSV files with URL data feeds and using FME Server to schedule workflows.

Foundation Data - Powering Enterprise and Enabling Good Government

Whilst foundation data is a commonplace term across the industry, do you know what it means and why is it important in the Australian context?

Geoscape Australia's, Shaun Bennett will discuss how Foundation Data is at the forefront of empowering businesses and government entities with the tools and insights they need to thrive and serve their communities effectively. Join us as we uncover the transformative power of data and its pivotal role in driving success in both the private and public sectors.

Digital Cadastre Modernisation Impact at Yarra Valley Water

State government initiative to modernise the cadastre by accurately mapping impacted the YVW asset's location as they were mapped in relation to the position of the older cadastre. This presentation will highlight the work YVW has undertaken and 1Spatial assisted us in completing.

FME as a project Integration backbone: Lessons and Advantages

Paul Macintyre discusses the Department's dynamic use of spatial and non-spatial data for enhanced benefits. Learn how FME serves as an integral integration backbone, facilitating swift deployment and easy interpretation for non-technical entities. This presentation delves into current and future FME projects, highlighting key lessons and advantages.

List Convergence with Python Programming

This presentation demonstrates how Python programming can resolve common challenges in FME workflows, such as managing complex logic and relationships across multiple feature types. While FME's flow-oriented programming can address these issues, it can be time-consuming. I will explain how list-generated transformers consolidate features into lists, which are then processed using Python in a Python Caller. This method transforms flow-oriented programming into object-oriented programming, optimizing processing time by leveraging the strengths of both styles.

Complex to seamless: Streamlining Local Government Data ETL with FME Server

The ACT Government’s ACTmapi team delivers foundational spatial datasets to government, businesses, and the public. This presentation showcases the successful use of FME Server to distribute core spatial data across platforms. Leveraging Safe Software products, the team has streamlined data management, improving efficiency and accuracy while reducing errors. The presentation highlights the benefits of FME Desktop and a lightweight FME Server instance for spatial data management, implementation details, and resulting improvements in data accuracy and timeliness. Attendees will gain insights into how FME technology can enhance their spatial data management practices.

Geoscience Australia is the custodian of a significant historical aerial photography collection. The collection is essential for understanding Australia’s changing landscape, with the majority of material pre-dating high-resolution satellite imagery or more recent digital aerial photography. The collection constitutes over 1.28 million vertical image frames. To date, approximately 40% has been digitised from film and is available to the public free of charge. FME has become a key workflow component of all aspects of the historical aerial photography project. From quality assurance on incoming data, ongoing database management, product generation and monthly reporting. This presentation will demonstrate how FME has been used in the project and highlight some key transformers that are used to allow the project to deliver this important dataset to the public.

Use cases of FME within the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety Western Aust

Some of the ways my team at the Department of Mines, Industry Regulations and Safety Western Australia uses FME are:

  • Updating of SDE feature class layers.
  • Processing of externally sourced data.
  • Serving a variety of output formats to the public.
  • Address validation.
  • Co-ordinate system conversions.
