For Lightspeed maps, the API provides a single entry point for editing and visualizing AIXM 5.1 data:
The styler can be set on a LuciadLightspeed layer containing an AIXM 5.1 Abstract Message.
See the javadoc of the styler for more details about the supported features and how they are styled.
It is also possible to choose your own styling of AIXM 5.1 features. The styling has to be defined
as an SLD feature type style. SLD is a powerful rule-based styling mechanism developed by the OGC,
defined as an XML format. LuciadLightspeed already supports these styles by default, but now
they can also be easily applied to AIXM 5.1 features.
See the javadoc on
setSLDFeatureTypeStyle method in the
TLspAIXMStyler classes for more details.
The AIXM 5.1 painters not only allow you to set a style but also allow access to predefined styles. This makes it easier for
application developers to allow style customization as they can allow their users to customize an existing style
instead of having to write one from scratch.
getSLDFeatureTypeStyle method in the
TLspAIXMStyler for more details.
