ArcGIS Interoperability Extension (3 days)

Learn how to get the most out of ArcGIS Data Interoperability from Safe Software, the ESRI Corporate
Alliance partner behind this powerful new extension. See how you can get the data you need into the format
you need, easily and effortlessly. Through a combination of theory and hands-on exercises (1/3 lecture, 2/3
exercise and problem solving), users will become more knowledgeable, comfortable, and familiar with
harnessing the full power of this increasingly popular product.
Day 1
ArcCatalog and ArcMap
· View non-native files directly from the browse tree
· Gain access to data requiring user input, such as enterprise databases via Interoperability
· Manipulate detailed settings for CAD import
· Drag and drop data directly into ArcMap
· Practice Exercises
ArcToolbox and ModelBuilder
· Quickly import data into Geodatabase from non-native formats
· Quickly export data from Geodatabase into non-native formats
· Use the Quick Import and Quick Export Tool inside ModelBuilder for Geoprocessing
· Practice Exercises
Day 2
· Create Custom Import Tools to restructure geometry and attributes during import
· Create Custom Export Tools to restructure geometry and attributes during export
· Create Custom Formats to restructure geometry and attributes while viewing
· Practice Exercises
· Time to work with attendees’ own data and translation/transformation issues.

Learn FME Technology from the experts, and Get Results!
Learn from the experts how to use the essential components of the Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) through
hands-on lab training. Join our two-day (1/3 lecture, 2/3 exercise and problem solving) course and learn to unlock the
powerful features of FME to more effectively manage your data translation and data transformation challenges. FME
Training can help open up a whole new world of possibilities for you. Questions are encouraged throughout the class
and attendees are encouraged to bring their own sample data files.
Learn how to
· Take advantage of all the FME Suite applications Use a wide variety of data manipulation tools available in
FME Easily build very complex translations using FME Workbench Debug and QA your translations and
datasets Use FME with non-spatial data
· Use FME in a batch environment
Training workbooks are provided. Attendees can bring their own laptops, or may make use of the facility’s hardware
for the hands-on portion of the class.
