FME Transformers: 2024.1

Cartography and Reports


Replaces the geometry of the feature with a label point.

The insertion point of the text is guaranteed to be inside (in case of polygons) or on (lines and points) the original object. Note that since the text itself may be larger than an input area feature, the bounds of the label may exceed the bounds of the area.

  • If the feature was already a point, it is simply turned into a text feature at the original location.
  • If the feature was a line, it is turned into a point text feature at the midpoint of the line, with a rotation parallel to the line.
  • If the feature was an area feature, the resulting point is somewhere in the interior of the feature (and outside of any holes in the area).


Usage Notes

  • To generate a point that will be used as a centroid for polygons, use an CenterPointReplacer. This saves you the overhead of having a text object.
