Replaces the geometry of the feature with a two-dimensional arc whose shape is set by the parameters, which can be either constant floating point values or the values of existing attributes.  

Input Ports

Output Ports


Each parameter may either be entered as a number, or taken from the value of a feature attribute by selecting the attribute name from the pull-down list.


Usage Notes

If the parameters for the arc are not known and need to be calculated from a linear feature’s geometry, use the ArcEstimator.

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.
