Fourier transforms of electromagnetic form factors provide valuable insights into the spatial distribution of quarks/charge within a hadron. When combined with form factors arising from non-forward matrix elements of the tensor operator, we are able to unlock fascinating information into the distribution of transversely polarised/unpolarised quarks within a transversely polarised/unpolarised hadron. Here we present results from the QCDSF collaboration for simulations in Nf=2+1 QCD for the form factors of the octet baryons and their resulting transverse spin densities. Particular attention is paid to SU(3) flavour breaking effects in the octet baryons as we move away from the SU(3)-symmetric point towards the physical point.
