A common and timely situational picture is essential to assess exceptional situations, such as during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, data sources are often very heterogeneous and inconsistent, consuming many human resources if collected and harmonized manually.
Using FME allows us to connect to various data types (spreadsheets, APIs, spatial data) and add value by calculating indices. Finally, integrating the results in our GIS (web and desktop) allows consumer-friendly access to the information.
The whole process is fully automated, taking advantage of FME Server capabilities.
