You are here: Geometric Operators > Tiler


Chops the input features into a series of tiles.  

Features that span multiple tiles will be clipped into multiple features.  Features that lie on the boundary between tiles will be output once in each tile.  If this is not the desired behavior a DuplicateFilter transformer can be used.

This transformer works with raster, vector and point cloud data.

Note: Note: If you are inputting raster data, you may want to use the RasterTiler instead. The following table compares the Tiler and the RasterTiler:

  Tiler RasterTiler
Type of data accepted All types Raster only
Tile size units Ground coordinates Pixel coordinates
Tile row numbering (0, 1,...) Bottom to top Top to bottom
Supports forcing equal-size tiles No Yes
Supports raster index attribute No Yes
Supports number of horizontal/vertical tiles attribute No Yes

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.
