Importing Data from EDM Exposure Databases


Even when data is not stored in an open data format, AIR ImportExpress supports the import of data that is stored in proprietary RMS EDM (exposure data model) databases. The exposure data must be on the same server.

  AIR also provides a data conversion tool, the EDM Data Converter (EDC) that converts data from EDM format into a format compatible with either the CLASIC/2™ or the Touchstone application. You can use the standalone EDC with CLASIC/2 or with Touchstone. The integrated EDC is available only in Touchstone. The EDC produces a collection of three CSV files that you can import into CLASIC/2 or Touchstone. For information about choosing the most suitable tool and about installing and using it, refer to the AIR EDM Data Converter User's Guide on the AIR Client Portal.
