Using Esri and FME Tools to Encourage Standards for CHSR GIS Data
Authors: Brandon Jones
The California High Speed Rail Authority is benefiting greatly from tools GIS staff have created using ArcPy and FME to encourage standards among its many contractors it receives data from. Tools that make the job of the contractor easier while also automatically conforming data outputs to a standard is a way of encouraging use of those standards. Tools are used to do conversions or validations against the standards. This has reduced the amount of data management work for the Authority.
