Solve Esri ArcGIS Layer Interoperability Problems with FME
Create workflows in FME that extract and translate ArcGIS Layer data into hundreds of other formats for use in practically any application. Examples include:
- ArcGIS SHP and Geodatabase
- AutoCAD DWG
- other GIS applications like MapInfo
- raster formats
- and many more
More than a format translation tool, FME allows you to manipulate data’s contents and structure to fit the model of the target system, and extract only the data that you require from the source Layer file. By giving you complete control over conversion and how the data flows from source to destination, its integrity is preserved and the result is a file that behaves exactly how you need. FME workflows are constructed quickly, run automatically and can be reused for ongoing ArcGIS Layer transformation tasks, saving you time and helping you work more productively.
About Esri ArcGIS Layer
Maps in ArcGIS are assembled through a series of layers that display different aspects of the data using symbols and text labels. The ArcGIS Layer format is a mechanism used to display geographic datasets from ArcGIS in Esri's visualization tools such as ArcMap, ArcGlobe, and ArcScene.
* The following additional software is required to use this format in FME: Esri ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Engine, or ArcGIS Server
The table below outlines how Esri ArcGIS Layer is supported by our different FME products, and on which platform(s) the reader and/or writer runs.
