I have been given a spreadsheet which contains coordinates of welds along a pipeline. I'm using FME to create points from the coordinates. On average, the points are roughly 11 metres from each other, with some exceptions.
See below image:
What I would like to do is identify when the gaps are larger than about 15 or 20 metres apart. For example, the image below shows a gap of about 90m.
As this pipeline is not yet fully built, there will be many such gaps along its length. Here's an example of a couple of gaps which are several kilometres long (this image is zoomed out so the points look like lines):
One idea I had was to connect the points that are within 15 or 20 metres of each other. Or perhaps group them together somehow by giving each group a unique ID. Any change in that ID, will identify a gap in the points. However, I'm not really sure how I could do either of those in FME.
