In May 2013, LDS Manager Jeremy Palmer gave a demonstration at the FME World Tour in Auckland of using LDS web services changesets in FME to replicate parcel data from LDS into a database.

FME workbench parcel replication example (zip) (ZIP 38KB), published 13 May 2013

This example set of FME 2013 workbenches replicates Wellington parcel data from LDS using Web Feature Service to your own local MSSQL2008 database system. To run, open the lds_wfs_mssql_parcel_demo.fmw FME workbench and click Run. You will be required to enter your LDS web services API key and the name of the MSSQL 2008 database.


  • This workbench requires FME 2013 Microsoft SQL Server edition and SQLServer 2008 or later (with geometry data type)
  • This workbench assumes that you have a direct connection to the internet and your MSSQL 2008 database instance is installed locally. If this is not the case please alter to the Database Server and WFS Proxy published parameters values

How to debug the example if it fails to run

  • Look at the log file which is saved alongside the FME Workbench File
  • Also check the log files in the sub workspaces folder
  • If there are feature counts labelled on the connectors in the FME GUI, these can be used to determine how far the process got before stopping
