  • Description:

    Interested in data integration or GIS? Come to this free workshop to learn how to integrate data in different formats with Safe Software's FME.

    This workshop introduces the essential components and capabilities of FME through hands-on problem-solving exercises. It is a condensed version of a more in-depth FME Desktop Basic training and is a great start to become an efficient user of FME. Learn how to restructure and convert spreadsheet data, including easily generating HTML reports, all without any coding.

    This three-hour workshop is for beginners and anyone is welcome to attend, though prior experience working with spreadsheets (e.g. Microsoft Excel) or GIS software (e.g. Esri's ArcGIS) would be helpful.

    Learning objectives:
    • - Learn what FME Desktop is and what it can do for you
    • - Convert data from one format to another using FME Workbench
    • - View and inspect data using FME Data Inspector
    • - Manipulate data structure and content with transformers
    • - Work with multiple datasets in a single workspace
    • - Apply best practices to workspaces
