Displays one (or two) table(s) made of spatial features on a map.
Input data should contain a "the_geom" column encoded in WKT (Well-known Text) representation, and a variable storing the Coordinate Reference System. The best is to display data which was loaded using the "Read Shapefile as WKT" node.
Once you are in the the view:
- wheel scrolling zooms in and out
- the "Spatial tools" menu provides "zoom to fit", zoom in and out, info or pan (move) features
You can color the geometries by tuning the default colors in the configuration pane. You also can use the color manager node, and assign colors to each line based on its characteristics; this leads to more interesting symbologies.
The actual visualization is done using the wonderful geotools library .
