Cadcorp, developers of the pioneering Cadcorp SIS - Spatial Information System GIS software, announces integrated support for Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) Objects within Cadcorp SIS V6.0.
World leading, OpenGIS conformant, Cadcorp SIS, supports almost 100 popular data sources in their native form, with no need for translation, 'out of the box', at no extra cost. These include SHP, E00, DWG, DGN, MIF, TAB, SDTS, NTF, GML2, Oracle Spatial, OpenGIS Web Map and Features Services, and many others. In addition, Cadcorp VARs have added support for another 50 country-specific data sources. This wide range of data source support is extended even further through the incorporation of FME Objects. This combination gives Cadcorp SIS users unparalleled data support, wherever they may be in the world. Users in possession of a valid FME licence are able to access all of the FME data readers in Cadcorp SIS desktop, developer and Internet products. This greatly expands the data access capability of Cadcorp SIS and offers users even greater possibilities when integrating geospatial data.
"Cadcorp prides itself on providing native access to geospatial data sources." stated Martin Daly, Technical Director, Cadcorp. "Nevertheless, there are a number of data sources that users may additionally wish to integrate within Cadcorp SIS, and our support for FME Objects offers users an alternative yet complementary approach. Safe Software have made a business of translating a wide range of data sources, and by tying in this additional level of data access to Cadcorp SIS, users can be confident that Cadcorp SIS’s ever expanding list of supported data sources will continue to support their business activities."
"We are pleased to have another vendor embed a link to our FME Objects technology in their product," said Fil Vera, FME Objects Product Lead. "By enabling Cadcorp SIS to make use of FME if it is present, Cadcorp’s users have the ability to solve most any data access challenge they encounter."
Cadcorp SIS V6 is shipping now. Desktop products include the entry level Map Viewer, Map Manager, Map Editor and the flagship Map Modeller package.
