Module Review

This module was designed to introduce you to a wider range of FME transformers, plus a number of techniques for applying transformers more efficiently.

What You Should Have Learned from this Module

The following are key points to be learned from this session:


  • There are distinct groups of transformers that do work other than transforming data attributes or geometry
  • A large proportion of the most-used transformers are related to attribute-handling
  • Filtering is the act of dividing data. Conditional Filtering is the act of dividing data on the basis of a test or condition
  • Data Joins are carried out by transformers that merge data together, from within Workbench or from external data sources
  • Integrated functionality allows the author to replace support transformers with tools built-into operational transformers

FME Skills

  • The ability to locate a transformer to carry out a particular task, without knowing about that transformer in advance
  • The ability to use common transformers for attribute management
  • The ability to use transformers for filtering and dividing data
  • The ability to use transformers for merging data together
  • The ability to build strings and calculate arithmetic values using integrated tools
