I have a large utility system in AutoCAD dwg format. I need to convert it into ArcGIS shp or gdb format. It consists of structures and pipes all with associated text (mtext & multileader objects) all containing several parameters that will need to each broken out into it's own attribute field (eg: one attribute field for material, one for size, one for top invert, etc etc, see link for example)
Is there any set of FME/AGDI transformers or combination of that can automate or partially automate this process by reading from the text and converting it to multiple GIS attributes? I've found some transformers that can read & hack up the text, but I've found nothing that looks like it can associate the text with its respective features. There are over ten thousand features that need attribution and my aim is to avoid having to look individually at each feature to populate its fields. I have AutoCAD Map3d, ArcGIS and it's Data Interoperability extension at my disposal and can get the full FME program if needed.
