I want to convert some Mapinfo styles to Mapserver.
Here, I found some examples on how to make symbols. But I don't understand how it works.
For example a dashed line:
SYMBOL NAME "mapinfo-pen-73" TYPE vector FILLED true POINTS 5 25 25 30 45 30 35 25 END # Points ANCHORPOINT 0.5 0 END # SYMBOL
And i get my dashed line.
What does the POINTS block mean? I can't find any explanation, how to write POINTS by self. Where i can find documentation?
After i'd readed @user30184 and @Andreas answers i'm steal dont understand POINTS block.
I'm looking on my example in map:
i see dashed line.
If POINTS it is a polygons shape it's look like:
This moment dont clear for me. Why shape form different with dashed like form?
Im missed with Y axe. But anyway shape form very strange.
