Resets the geometry type of the feature. Depending on the feature’s actual coordinates, the transformer may have no effect. This transformer is sometimes used to have area features treated as though they were linear features, either because some later processing requires lines, or the destination format represents lines different than polygons and the linear representation is desired.
