FME Supports

  • 400+ formats and applications for many data types including GIS, database, XML, raster, BIM and more
  • Unicode to handle data in any language
  • Thousands of coordinate systems
  • INSPIRE Annex II and III spatial data themes

Consume and Leverage INSPIRE Data

Consume data made available through the initiative for use as business intelligence using FME's INSPIRE reader to transform GML data into the required format, model and coordinate system of hundreds of applications.

Automatically Read and Deliver INSPIRE GML

FME offers a graphical, no-code approach to creating OGC Web Feature Services (WFS) with customized WFS workspaces. Once a WFS workspace is deployed via FME Server or FME Cloud, it essentially becomes the WFS, automatically reading and delivering INSPIRE-compliant GML via WFS streams with scheduling and real-time capabilities.

The INSPIRE spatial data infrastructure initiative is an ongoing project in Europe that will enable the sharing of environmental information across the borders of its members. To comply, agencies across Europe must move their data into INSPIRE's complex GML-based structure.
