I am new to FME, and trying to get my head around what should be pretty straightforward issues, but I find myself going around in circles
Basically I want to determine the distance (chainage) to a series of points on a water main, which consists of 8 connecting line segments.
I have managed to create the chain of points every 10m by using the Labeller and then the GeometryCoercer (fme_point). I also joined up the 8 line segments into 1 by using LineJoiner.
The question is now how do I get the chainage to each of the points along the line?
- I've tried MeasureGenerator, but that gives me the chainage to the vertices not to the points
- I've tried ShortestPathFinder but they all come out of the Unused port. I also tried it with the TopologyBuilder first, but this had no effect
- I've tried PointOnLineOverlayer but this splits my line.
- I checked FME - Calculate distance of point along a line but couldn't get the answer either.
I think I'm close, but anybody got any suggestions?
