This is Safe Software's technical reference guide to more than 300 formats. It also provides help for Workbench format parameter settings.
- Quick Facts: This table contains high-level information on the format’s characteristics. For raster formats, it also includes raster-specific quick facts.
- Format Reader/Writer Parameters: These topics contain format-specific Workbench parameters.
- User Attributes: User Attributes tab in the Writer Feature Type Properties dialog.
- Writer Feature Type Format Parameters: Format Attributes tab in the Writer Feature Type Properties dialog.
- Feature Representation: FME adds generic feature attributes to all features (see About Feature Attributes). Most formats also add format-specific attributes, which are listed in this section.
- Mapping File Directives (Advanced Users): Most reader and writer directives correspond to Format Reader/Writer Parameters (see above) or Advanced parameters in the Workbench Navigator pane. These sections contain detailed technical information on FME-supported formats, and are intended for a technical audience involved in configuring FME for customized translation.
FME Desktop Help Map
Product documentation is accessed from the Start menu > FME Desktop > Documentation, and from any FME component Help menu.
By default, documentation is live (online); however, you can also choose to use installed (offline) documentation. From Workbench, select FME Options > Default Paths > Documentation Help Locations.
FME Desktop documentation includes:
|FME Workbench||This is the primary FME Desktop application for translating and transforming data.|
|FME Data Inspector||View data in any FME-supported format. Use the Data Inspector to preview data before translation, verify it after translation, and check data at any point during a translation.|
|FME Readers and Writers||This is a technical reference to the 300+ spatial and non-spatial data formats that FME Workbench is capable of reading and writing. It also includes format parameters that are visible in Workbench.|
|FME Transformers||This is a comprehensive reference to the 400+ FME transformers. Transformers are used in FME Workbench to perform geometric and attribute restructuring of features during a translation.|
|FME Coordinate Systems||This is a guide to associating coordinate systems with features in FME Desktop.|
|FME Integration Console||This component allows you to integrate certain third-party applications with FME Desktop.|
