Brings lines, segments, end points or vertex points of features together if they are within a certain distance of each other, where one set of features is non-moving.

The difference between the AnchoredSnapper and the Snapper is that anchor features are considered to be accurate and consequently do not move.


Usage Notes

  • Any feature that undergoes dimensional collapse as a result of being snapped will be output through the Collapsed port.
  • A short cleanup step is performed after snapping. This step will remove duplicate points, and may create aggregates to preserve overlapping, directed segments.
  • Features with geographic coordinates (latitude/longitude) will likely need to be reprojected to a coordinate system with real-world ground units (such as meters) to match the Snapping Distance parameter value.

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 drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
