Turns two-dimensional data into three-dimensional data by adding a z-value to every coordinate.
This transformer accepts any vector features. Features without 2D geometries will be unchanged.
Output features that have been converted to a three-dimensional form.
You can enter the parameter as a floating point number, or choose it from the value of a feature attribute by selecting the attribute name from the pull-down list.
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.
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.
