You are here: Collectors > BoundingBoxAccumulator


Takes a set of point, linear, polygonal, and/or aggregate features, and creates a two-dimensional bounding box, which contains all features. The bounding box is defined as the minimum enclosing rectangle for all input features. The minimum rectangle is such that all sides of the rectangle are parallel to the x axis and the y axis.

The input features may be partitioned into groups based on attribute values using the Group By parameter, and one bounding box feature is output for each group. If the Group By parameter is not specified, then all input features will be processed together and a single bounding box will be output. If a given bounding box has zero area, it will become a line or a point.





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.
