City of Fort Bragg, CA

FME Data Translation

We took the City’s AutoCAD DWG parcel layer and rubber sheeted it based on the County’s parcel layer.  Using Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) we took the centroid of each parcel in both the County’s and City’s parcel layer and built a vector set indicating the offset between the two comparable points.  We created a vector for each parcel centroid set since the magnitude and direction of the offset varied by location.  Once we created the vector set, we translated the City’s parcel layer and associated utility layers.
