Adding Point for GraphicText

Oct 10, 2012 at 8:02 AM


is ist possible to create a second postgis-object as MULTIPOINT for GeoMedia Textgeometry-objects? Maybe with an optional databasefield for the rotation?

With this other applications like geoserver can use GeoMedia-Textgeometry as standard postgis objects.

Thanks for you reply,

Hi Volker,

this is something which would affect the code significantly and I am not sure whether it is even viable. I suppose you export some text data from another GeoMedia warehouse to PostGIS and then you get these text geometries which are not visible to other applications. In this case, I would suggest you to use functional attributes  to decompose the text field of the original table into point, orientation and text fields and export this "functional attribute query" to PostGIS.

Thanks, Pavel
