Read from KML

KNIME Spatial Processing Nodes version 1.2.2.v201911131528 by EIFER (European Institute for Energy Research)

Reads spatial data stored in KML format and decodes the geometries into WKT (Well-known Text Representation). Decodes every attribute of the spatial features as a column of a corresponding KNIME type.

Note that KML data is always assumed to be encoded in the Coordinate Reference System EPSG:4326. If you have problems with further processing of spatial data, you might try to reproject to another CRS using the "Reproject WKT geometries" node.

The actual decoding of the shapefile format is done using the geotools library.
