Posts a query to a WhiteStar Legal2Map™ WebServices (WS3) server to obtain points or polygons matching a list of legal land descriptions.

A feature is emitted for each point or polygon returned from the query.


Request Parameters

Connection Parameters

HTTP Authentication Parameters


The query for well locations described by the queries "6 25S 21E 1 SE SE SE NW" and "6 10S 16W 2 C SE NE SW" is formed as follows:

  1. The input feature contains the attribute request{0} and request{1} with the values:

request{0} = "6 25S 21E 1 SE SE SE NW"

request{1} = "6 10S 16W 2 C SE NE SW"

  1. "Request Description Attribute" is set to "request{}"
  2. "Result Description Attribute" is set to "_description"
  3. "Transaction ID attribute" is set to "_trans_id"
  4. "Resulting Geometry Type" is set to "Point".
  5. Web service host, username, and password are entered for the target server.

Execution of this query results in the following two features:


IFMEPoint (-95.052404999999993,37.900077000000003)

_description -> `6 25S 21E 1 SESESENW'

_trans_id -> `871'

fme_geometry -> `fme_point'

fme_type -> `fme_point'


IFMEPoint (-99.076954999999998,39.209764999999997)

_description -> `6 10S 16W 2 CSENESW'

_trans_id -> `871'

fme_geometry -> `fme_point'

fme_type -> `fme_point'


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.
