ERDAS APOLLO Feature Interoperability - Released

ERDAS announces the release of ERDAS APOLLO Feature Interoperability, a new product extending ERDAS APOLLO’s native vector support by adding support for additional CAD and GIS formats and tools. IMAGINE Feature Interoperability was released in late 2009, adding similar support to ERDAS IMAGINE users.

ERDAS APOLLO Feature Interoperability provides access to GIS data formats, including a DGN Connector to ERDAS APOLLO that enables direct access to MicroStation’s DGN v7 and v8 format files via web services. The module is powered by Safe Software’s FME technology, which provides direct read and write support to a large and expanding number of vector feature formats.

“ERDAS APOLLO Feature Interoperability makes it easier for users to exchange data, easily converting to and from various formats,” said Mladen Stojic, Senior Vice President, Product Management & Marketing, ERDAS. “The ability to directly read and write the DGN format makes this format available in ERDAS APOLLO for visualization, analysis and mapping.”

Safe Software’s FME Workbench and Universal Viewer are bundled and enable format conversion, data manipulation and analysis. FME Workbench provides a graphical environment to quickly translate, transform and integrate spatial data in hundreds of formats. By dragging and dropping data, features and processes onto the canvas and making relevant connections, a multi-step conversion of features can be reduced to a single workflow. The FME Universal Viewer allows for visualization of the data, symbology edits and feature attribute queries.

ERDAS APOLLO Feature Interoperability is included in the ERDAS Software 2010, Version 10.1 release. For more information on ERDAS, please call +1 770 776 3400, toll free +1 877 GO ERDAS, or visit
