Marrying FME & ArcGIS

Presentation Outline:

What happens when the honeymoon phase of tedious GIS workflows is over? How do you maintain a healthy relationship with your daily tasks? Automation is the key to a happy marriage! The goal of this workshop is for attendees to learn how to marry FME with ArcGIS to automate Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) workflows. Attendees will gain access to an "Automating GIS Workflows with the ArcGIS Pro Data Interoperability Extension" resource website that includes resources such as slides, quizzes, exercises, and a project that ties it all together.
