FME Transformers: 2024.1

Point Clouds


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.

Usage Notes



The default criteria are set to coerce only the top level of passed in geometries.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Transformer parameters can be set by directly entering values, using expressions, or referencing other elements in the workspace such as attribute values or user parameters. Various editors and context menus are available to assist. To see what is available, click beside the applicable parameter.

For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
