Using FME to Create Vectors and Geometrics with Azimuths
The Cultural Group at Golder needed aid in reproducing locations of geometic shapes based on data collected in the field and delivered in spreadsheet format. As part of a mitigation strategy for archaeological sites that are stone features, detailed maps are required. FME Desktop workbench uses bearing and distances to calculate vectors. Once the vector is created, a geometric shape (ovals, triangles and rectangles) is created at the endpoint based on length, width & area. Finally, the shape is rotated based on the bearing that is value mapped into a degree.
