How FME Works
At the heart of FME is an engine that supports an array of data types and data formats; from GIS and CAD to BIM and Point Cloud, via XML, Raster, databases, and many more.
Rich Data Model
The capability to support so many data types is made possible by a rich data model that handles all possible geometry and attribute types.
Most importantly, the data translation process is seamless to the user; FME automatically converts between data types as required, and automatically substitutes one attribute or geometry type for another where the destination format does not support it.
