Subject: Re: [HOT] Haiti support and FME
Unless you guys had other plans about FME server, here is an
application form for FME Server Beta (which includes an early stage OSM
writer, in addition to the existing OSM reader) Program, which might be
Would you have time to fill it up, with the needs you foresee ?
After reading the blog entry quoted on http://opengeodata.org/fme-loves-osm, I am wondering whether we might
not ask Safe Software for server hardware and network to host FME
Server too. Considering the context, it could be a world-wide show case
for them. It might be used by :
- OSM for Haiti needs, in connection with other Haiti responders
(especially while you guys are there)
- other HOT projects needs
- other general OSM needs
(optionally, in likely decreasing priority order).
Given the number of possible users, they might want to make sure the
FME server host responds quickly, without overloading existing OSM
servers, and OSM sys-admins.
(If they'd rather save on their own sys-admins time, and not administer
the server themselves, I think it wouldn't be a problem to find
competent volunteers here or in broader OSM community).
Maybe a re-targeted and trimmed down version of the needs summary that
was recently discussed on Talk could help convince them. What do you
think, Mikel ?
(For my part, I have installed FME Professional Beta, only available on
Windows, with a 14 day evaluation licence. It can be used to generate
"workbenches", that would then run on the server).
