You are here: Manipulators > GeographicBufferer


Expands or shrinks the boundary segments in the input geometry by a specified amount, and if necessary, connects them using stroked arcs.

This transformer works much the same way as the standard Bufferer, but is designed for use with features in Geographic coordinates. The transformer reprojects the features into the Dynamic Equal Distance projection, buffers them, then reprojects back into the original Geographic coordinates.
