is there any way to import a SVG file into KNIME like it is possible with a PNG oder JPEG file? I have tried the Image Reader node from the KNIP but it doesn't work...
Have a nice day!
This is actually not very easy (possible?!) to do with KNIME at the moment. I've logged a feature request for this so hopefully it will be added in one of the next releases.
it's not trivial but it can be done: svg are xml files so, technically, you can open them with the XML Reader node and use Xpath to extract the info you're looking for.
I am attaching a workflow that takes a simple map (attached as well), colors the countries with random colors and then saves an updated map
more complex maps can be a pain with this approach, though
I think we may have the ability to read and type SVG data soon. Stay tuned.
Thank you for your reply, the workflow you attached looks great!
I would really appreciate that, because I have to embed some bad ass R made (ggplot2) plots into a BIRT report! :-D
