Jump to Configuration

Typical Uses

  • Altering raster band order to meet format or processing requirements.

How does it work?

The RasterBandOrderer receives raster features and rearranges their bands according to a specified band order.

The band order is defined by a list of current band indices, in the desired order, separated by spaces. Index numbers start at zero.

Bands in the original raster that are not included in the band list are appended after all specified bands, in their original order. Bands may not be included in the list more than once.


Usage Notes

Choosing a Raster Transformer

FME has an extensive selection of transformers for working with raster data. They can be generally categorized as working with whole rasters, bands, cells or palettes, and those designed for workflow control or combining raster with vector data.

For information on raster geometry and properties, see Rasters (IFMERaster).
