Additional Information

Changes made by the data provider to use space separation between coordinate values in the rather than comma separated values has addressed the issue. The GeoEvent RSS inbound connector is now able to poll and retrieve data from the referenced feed.


Use the more generic ‘Poll an External Website for XML’ inbound connector to poll the GeoRSS feed. The Extensible Markup Language (XML) adapter however is not able to parse the GeoRSS point geometry representation <georss:point>. Geometry has to be manually created from the incoming feed.1. Once the input GeoEvent defintion is generated, use Field Mapper to map the event structure to a similar geoevent defintion which contains extra fields for storing latitude, longitude, and geometry.2. A couple of Field Calculator processors can then be configured to isolate first the latitude and then the longitude values using Java String functions.3. Another Field Calculator processor is then used to generate a JSON String representation of a Geometry and this is mapped using a Field Mapper processor to a final GeoEvent definition, which would drop the intermediate latitude-longitude fields.
