Moving data between different formats and applications can sometimes involve more than a straight format-to-format translation. Your datasets might contain more complex components that do not fit the requirements of the destination system. To preserve key aspects of the data and load it seamlessly into the target application, you might need to adjust things like the data model, descriptive elements, and coordinate systems.
A transformer is an FME Workbench object that can perform geometric and attribute restructuring. There are hundreds of different transformers that perform different types of restructuring. This is known as data transformation and it is one of FME's core capabilities.
