Reprojects feature coordinates from one coordinate system to another using the REFRAME library. This transformer handles the usual planimetric and altimetric reference frame change for Switzerland.
The following Swiss reference frames are supported:
- Plane coordinates LV03 (CH1903)
- Plane coordinates LV95 (CH1903+)
- National levelling network LN02 (levelled heights)
- National height network LHN95 (orthometric heights, CHGeo2004)
- Ellipsoidal heights (Bessel)
• Windows 32
• Windows 64
Specifies the reference frame used for source ground measurements.
Specifies the reference frame used for destination ground measurements.
Specifies the reference frame used for source height measurements.
Specifies the reference frame used for destination height measurements.
The Cell Size applies only to raster features.
Stretch Cells: The cell size of the raster will be adjusted to maintain the same number of rows and columns in the reprojected raster as there were in the input raster.
Square Cells: The number of rows and columns as well as the spacing will be changed to maintain approximately the same cell ground area and form square cells where the horizontal and vertical cell sizes are equal. Like the Square Cells option, Preserve Cells will change both the number of rows and columns and the spacing to maintain cell ground area, but will also try to preserve the original cell aspect ratio, taking into account any warping caused by the reprojection.
Preserve Cells: Like the Square Cells option, this option will change both the number of rows and columns and the spacing to maintain cell ground area, but will also try to preserve the original cell aspect ratio, taking into account any warping caused by the reprojection.
The Interpolation Type affects only raster data. Cell values are interpolated in order to change the raster to the specified size.
Nearest Neighbor is the fastest but produces the poorest image quality.
Bilinear provides a reasonable balance of speed and quality.
Bicubic is the slowest but produces the best image quality.
Average 4 and Average 16 have a performance similar to Bilinear and are useful for numeric rasters such as DEMs.
To perform a reference frame change, select the planimetric and altimetric input and output frames.
The input and output reference frames can be the same (or empty): it allows you to perform only a planimetric or only an altimetric transformation.

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.
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.
Using the Text Editor
The Text Editor provides a convenient way to construct text strings (including regular expressions) from various data sources, such as attributes, parameters, and constants, where the result is used directly inside a parameter.
Using the Arithmetic Editor
The Arithmetic Editor provides a convenient way to construct math expressions from various data sources, such as attributes, parameters, and feature functions, where the result is used directly inside a parameter.
Set values depending on one or more test conditions that either pass or fail.
Expressions and strings can include a number of functions, characters, parameters, and more.
When setting values - whether entered directly in a parameter or constructed using one of the editors - strings and expressions containing String, Math, Date/Time or FME Feature Functions will have those functions evaluated. Therefore, the names of these functions (in the form @<function_name>) should not be used as literal string values.
|These functions manipulate and format strings.|
|A set of control characters is available in the Text Editor.|
|Math functions are available in both editors.|
|Date/Time Functions||Date and time functions are available in the Text Editor.|
|These operators are available in the Arithmetic Editor.|
|These return primarily feature-specific values.|
|FME and workspace-specific parameters may be used.|
|Creating and Modifying User Parameters||Create your own editable parameters.|
Dialog Options - Tables
Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
Enabled once you have clicked on a row item. Choices include:
Cut, Copy, and Paste
Enabled once you have clicked on a row item. Choices include:
Cut, copy, and paste may be used within a transformer, or between transformers.
|Start typing a string, and the matrix will only display rows matching those characters. Searches all columns. This only affects the display of attributes within the transformer - it does not alter which attributes are output.|
|Import populates the table with a set of new attributes read from a dataset. Specific application varies between transformers.|
Generally resets the table to its initial state, and may provide additional options to remove invalid entries. Behavior varies between transformers.
Note: Not all tools are available in all transformers.
