I want to create a fishnet based on the extent of individual polygons from a list of polygons. I plan on processing each resulting fishnets further.
I am maintaining a worldwide data set on Quarter Degree Grid Cells split into country level grids. I have previously used a python script to generate the grid cell sets. My workflow has been as described in an article on my blog. The point which breaks my workflow is first generating a world level fishnet, certainly when I am operating on a 1/8th degree cell level and below. I want to create the necessary fishnets on a country level instead. To support that workflow I need to know the following:
Does FME provide functionality to create fishnet polygons with a defined lon/lat starting point? And if so does that method accept scripted inputs so that this can be done based on a vector data source with n countries/regions defined?
