Excel addin/WWT GEOMETRY data types RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I see from the Excel demos that polyline and polygon are valid data types understood by WWT.  Is there a comprehensive list of what else works and how to format it?

    Ultimately I'd like to be able to just send the appropriate traffic over the network, e.g. control multiple displays by a script from a single laptop instead of having to connect to each display computer manually via Excel.

  • WWT uses the WKT (well known text) and hence you can add all the shapes support by WKT. You may find the comprehensive list at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well-known_text

    Unfortunately with current implementation of the Excel Add-in you can connect to only one computer at a time.

    Please let me know if this helps you.

    -Regards

  • Yes, that is exactly what I was looking for, thanks.  Any chance this info could be made clearer in the office WWT help files?

  • Yes, preparing a document containing such informations is under thought process. But most probably such a document will be available for download from Layerscape site by the end of the next month.
