Turns two-dimensional data into three-dimensional data by adding a z-value to every coordinate.

Input Ports

Output Ports


If the feature was two-dimensional, it becomes three-dimensional with a constant elevation.

If the feature was already three-dimensional, its previous elevations are wiped out and replaced with the value held in the specified attribute.

Usage Notes

Note that the SurfaceDraper transformer (available in FME Professional and higher) can be used to supply interpolated elevation values to the vertices of 2D features based on a 3D grid or set of 3D features.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
