The tool WKT2MapInfo lets you convert a WKT feature stored in a text column to a MapInfo spatial object.
You basically open a table or select an already open table and then you specify a few things on how to present the objects.
You can add a thematic to the map after having converted the WKT string to a MapInfo spatial objekt.
The application expects the WKT string to be stored in a column called WKT, GEO or a column name specified in the configuration file.
You can create the spatial object from the WKT string in the MapInfo table or for tables with larger features, the application do a look up in the database via the ID and extract the full WKT string (up tp approximately 32,000 characters) for creating the spatial object.
