I have created an FME workspace which inputs a pipeline as well as other linear features which cross it (waterways, roads, railways, fences, other pipelines, etc). The output is a point file which contains the crossing type. What I would like to do is calculate the distance along the pipe from the start of the pipeline for each intersection. So, as you travel along the pipeline, the distance attribute will increase.
I'm thinking that I'll need to use some of the linear referencing tools like MeasureGenerator, MeasureExtractor, or something like that, but I'm not sure how to do so.
Does anyone have an idea of how to do this?
