Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) tools can play an important part in the on-going GIS configuration for organziations. EMH&T will define and demonstrate ETL tools and then present a case study where ETL was critical to achieving the project objectives and how it was configured. If you have never seen ETL tools in action or if you struggle with publishing data from a variety of formats and/or platforms, this presentation would be of interest to you.
