Because I've been noticing that some internships are requesting some know-how of this tool.

I would like to ask how is it used in the industry?
What do you use it for at your job?
Where could you learn it?

as far as I know my Geomatics program doesn't offer courses in any related SpatialETL software.

    I think this is a valid and good question - it would be well suited to the community-wiki format.

  • Although interesting I think this question is unsuitable for our focussed Q&A format due to being too broad (several questions included) and too likely to generate opinions. You could try clicking tags here to get an idea of how much the community is using it and fme to see how they are using it.

    Here's a presentation I did on how we use FME at the FME world tour last year: slideshare.net/SafeSoftware/… Apr 30, 2015 at 21:25

    For those who are unaware of Community Wiki and when to use or not use it, please see meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/550/…. In its edited form there are still three (rather than one) questions, but each of those has potential to attract dozens of answers of varying quality and I think it is far more useful when there are no more than a handful (preferably just 2-3) to choose from when someone "just wants to get an answer" as they search our site.

    I get the feeling it's an issue because it's a specific software. If you changed "FME" in the title to "Spatial ETL" then I guess it would be more acceptable. May 4, 2015 at 14:31
