Since 2015, anyone who carries out digging works must submit a KLIP application. This prevents excavation damage. Every cable and pipeline manager in Flanders sends the location of its underground infrastructure via the IMKL format. This XML format is INSPIRE-based and not always readable by CAD and GIS software. The solution? Nordend developed a special plug-in on FME Server. This converts the format into a file that is immediately usable by the project developer.
How does it work? First, the system converts each theme layer from the IMKL into an intermediate format. Then the user chooses his favourite: GeoPackage, SpatiaLite, DWG, DWG with OD (AutoCAD Map 3D), DGN, SDF, SHP, FileGeoDB or FFS.
The advantages? The maximum flexibility to apply your existing templates to the DWG and DGN files. You decide which attributes are visible in the output and which name they are given. This is an excellent solution for SHP-files where the length of the names is limited: the IMKL Read and Convert can be implemented perfectly in your current business processes.
The Nordend solution:

Nordend and Red Geographics jointly built a basic map for the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg on behalf of the Ministry of Economy (General Directorate for Tourism). Our approach?
The result? A uniform map of Luxembourg with a buffer of 5 kilometres. Any of the five tourist offices asks for a map cut-out? Then we provide the requested walking and cycling maps. They also call on our basic map expertise for the roadside information boards.
Together with Red Geographics we developed an extension to the existing dashboards of FME Server and FME Cloud. The goal? Get an excellent insight into the load on your FME Server.
Our approach? We answer a few important questions. Are there times when a process starts up too slowly? Are there processes that take too long, causing other delays? The answers are a crucial source of information and help you make important decisions. Perhaps you would do well, for example, to invest in an extra engine?
How does it work? You receive four reports: daily, weekly, fortnightly and monthly. This is how you monitor the impact of a configuration change. We feed the dashboards from a database – which we update daily. The database is part of the FME Server configuration and is therefore also transferred when a server is upgraded.
Do you have any questions about upgrading your FME Server Dashboard? Then be sure to contact us. During a software demonstration, we will work together to find out what the product can do for your organisation.
