Shapefile Extension (trusted extension)

About the nodes

The Shapefile Extension provides nodes for reading ESRI shapefiles into KNIME. It integrates with the KNIME Open Street Map (OSM) nodes. So the polygons or points from the shapefile can be visualized in the OSM views.


Two examples can be found on the KNIME Example-Server.
