The Spatial Archive and Interchange Format (SAIF) can be used as the basis of geospatial modeling, as well as for exchange and archival purposes. SAIF, a Canadian national standard, is also closely related to international efforts such as the openGIS(TM) initiative and the SQL MultiMedia Spatial development.

Currently available software for Linux are:

  • The FMEBC translation package, providing configurable spatial data translation between SAIF, ESRI Shapefiles, ESRI Generate, Intergraph IGDS Files, and tabular files.
  • SAIFSuite, a suite of utilities which can facilitate data management of SAIF/ZIP files and use of the FMEBC.
