How to read a shapefile(.shp) from HDFS by using Spark node


I was wondering if it is possible to read a shapefile (.shp) from HDFS using a spark node.

I don’t think there is a node that can do this.

If there’s a way to do this that I haven’t thought of, please let me know.


Hello hhkim,

Thank you for reaching out. You may find the solution to your query in this forum question where the same function has been discussed.

Moreover, I would suggest checking out the KNIME Extension for Apache Spark, which offers a wide range of nodes to cater to your spark requirements.

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Have a great day!

Best regards,
