AngleConverter
Converts angles of a feature's geometry and/or attributes from one representation to another.
Input Ports
This transformer accepts any feature.
Output Ports
All processed features are output through this port.
Parameters
Choose from Geometry and Attributes or Attributes Only.
If geometry is being converted, then it assumed that the geometry of the input features is represented in the source angular format and will be converted to the destination angular format. For example, if a twopoint line is represented in DDMMSS as 1800000,223000 900000,450000, then it would be represented as 180,22.5 90.0,45.0 when converted to DECIMAL_DEGREES.
Choose from the list of attributes containing angles that are to be converted.
DECIMAL_DEGREES, RADIANS, DDDMMSS, DDDMMSSSS, NSDDEW, NSDDMMSSEW and DD1234
where:
 DECIMAL_DEGREES  The angle is represented as decimal degrees.
 RADIANS  The angle is represented as radians.
 DDDMMSS  The angle is represented as an integer in degrees, minutes, seconds. For example, 180 degrees would be 1800000, and 22.5 degrees is represented as 22 degrees and 30 minutes and encoded as 223000.
 DDDMMSSSS  The angle is represented as an integer in degrees, minutes, hundredths of a second. For example, 180 degrees would be 180000000, and 22.5 degrees is represented as 22 degrees and 30 minutes and encoded as 22300000.
 NSDDEW  The angle is represented as decimal degrees with an indicated bearing. The degrees will never exceed 90 degrees. For example, 150 degrees would be represented as S30E.
 NSDDMMSSEW  The angle is represented as an integer in degrees, minutes, and seconds with a bearing indicating direction. The degrees will never exceed 90. For example 180 degrees would be S000000E, and 22.5 degrees is represented as North 22 degrees and 30 minutes East and encoded as N223000E.
 DD1234  The angle is represented as decimal degrees followed by a quadrant. Quadrant 1=NE, 2=SE, 3=SW and 4=NW. The decimal degrees will never exceed 90. For example 150 degrees will be represented as 302.
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.
Defining Values
There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the dropdown context menu adjacent to the value field.
Using the Text Editor
The Text Editor provides a convenient way to construct text strings (including regular expressions) from various data sources, such as attributes, parameters, and constants, where the result is used directly inside a parameter.
Using the Arithmetic Editor
The Arithmetic Editor provides a convenient way to construct math expressions from various data sources, such as attributes, parameters, and feature functions, where the result is used directly inside a parameter.
Conditional Values
Set values depending on one or more test conditions that either pass or fail.
Parameter Condition Definition Dialog
Content
Expressions and strings can include a number of functions, characters, parameters, and more.
When setting values  whether entered directly in a parameter or constructed using one of the editors  strings and expressions containing String, Math, Date/Time or FME Feature Functions will have those functions evaluated. Therefore, the names of these functions (in the form @<function_name>) should not be used as literal string values.
These functions manipulate and format strings.  
Special Characters 
A set of control characters is available in the Text Editor. 
Math functions are available in both editors.  
Date/Time Functions  Date and time functions are available in the Text Editor. 
These operators are available in the Arithmetic Editor.  
These return primarily featurespecific values.  
FME and workspacespecific parameters may be used.  
Creating and Modifying User Parameters  Create your own editable parameters. 
Dialog Options  Tables
Transformers with tablestyle parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
Row Reordering

Enabled once you have clicked on a row item. Choices include:

Cut, Copy, and Paste

Enabled once you have clicked on a row item. Choices include:
Cut, copy, and paste may be used within a transformer, or between transformers. 
Filter

Start typing a string, and the matrix will only display rows matching those characters. Searches all columns. This only affects the display of attributes within the transformer  it does not alter which attributes are output. 
Import

Import populates the table with a set of new attributes read from a dataset. Specific application varies between transformers. 
Reset/Refresh

Generally resets the table to its initial state, and may provide additional options to remove invalid entries. Behavior varies between transformers. 
Note: Not all tools are available in all transformers.
