FME Data Inspector GIS Data Paging and Display

FME Data Inspector GIS Data Paging and Display

Client: Safe Software Description : AlphaPixel developed a virtual-paging database interface to FME’s internal geospatial data store for FME’s OpenSceneGraph-based Data inspector. FME (Feature Manipulation Engine), a spatial ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) tool, contains a sub-module known as Data Inspector for inspecting data at any stage of the data pipeline. This tool pulls data from

libLASIndex

Client: Hobu, Inc Description : Designed and implemented an quadtree-based system for libLAS to efficiently sort and index massive streams of LIDAR data points in one pass without requiring the dataset be memory resident. The index can be stored embedded in the original LAS file as a set of VLR (variable Length Record) data types.
