I am very new to QGIS, so please excuse me if my question seems stupid to you. I have a small question regarding setting manually colors for points and lines. I have a bunch of nodes and vertices to display in different colors. I have written a script in VBA which at the end exports some data to KML (works in google earth, however there are other issues). I have already read that there is limited support for KML (especially with regard to styles) so I tried switching to GML. However QGIS doesn’t seem to respect the manually defined colors. This is an extract from the generated file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <ogr:FeatureCollection xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="" xmlns:ogr="http://ogr.maptools.org/" xmlns:gml="http://www.opengis.net/gml"> <gml:featureMember> <ogr:gml fid="gml.0"> <ogr:geometryProperty><gml:Point srsName="EPSG:4326"><gml:coordinates>-88.95786,37.79588</gml:coordinates></gml:Point></ogr:geometryProperty> <ogr:col>>#00248F</ogr:col> <ogr:Name>S_0018302310</ogr:Name> <ogr:Description></ogr:Description> </ogr:gml> </gml:featureMember> </ogr:FeatureCollection>
QGiS Displays the respective Nodes and Vertices but does not respect the defined Color.
At the end of the day I only need to display multiple graphs (about 200 with approx 20 nodes each) with multiple colors (colors are randomly generated, nodes and verices should have the same color) on a map. If none of the file formats is suited for this task, maybe you could propose another procedure.
