APT Reader

Licensing options for this format begin with FME Desktop Professional Edition.

The APT Reader allows FME to read APT files. The APT is a published ASCII format used in design systems. It is a three-dimensional (3D) system.

APT files store both feature geometry and attribution, and have an .apt file name extension. The extension is added to the basename of the APT file.

The APT reader supports the storage of point, line, and polygon geometric data in .apt files. The APT format also stores features with no geometry (which are referred to as having a geometry of none).

Reader Overview

The APT reader extracts features from a file one at a time, and passes them on to the rest of the FME for further processing. The reader finishes when it reaches the end of the file.
