KB10360 - Custom render icons/symbols to reflect qualitative information


Value dependent rendering can be performed using a *.TTKGP file (TatukGIS project file) or *.INI files. For example:

[TatukGIS Layer1]
Path=mylayer.shp

[TatukGIS Layer1 1]
Render=severity<5
MarkerColor=GREEN

[TatukGIS Layer1 2]
Render=severity>=5
MarkerColor=RED


In this example, incidents with a severity rating of 1 – 4.99 (on a fictional severity rating scale) will be rendered the color green and those with a severity rating of 5 or greater will be rendered the color red.

The TatukGIS on-line Editor/Viewer tutorials provide some guidance on rendering symbols and others aspects of setting up the appearance of each map layer.
