Geo Coordinate Latitude and Longitude pair.
Geo Coordinate List List of comma separated Geo Coordinates:

lat0,lon0,lat1,lon1,lat2,lon2,...

Color Color code. Following formats are supported:

Hexadecimal notation for the combination of alpha (alpha compositing), red, green and blue. The value is specified as 4 pairs of two-digit hexadecimal numbers (00...FF) as AARRGGBB, where A=alpha, R=red, G=green and B=blue. Example: 880000FF

Hexadecimal notation for the combination of red, green and blue. The value is specified as 3 pairs of two-digit hexadecimal numbers (00...FF) as RRGGBB, where R=red, G=green and B=blue. With alpha it will be interpreted as FFRRGGBB.

Example: 0000FF (interpreted as FF0000FF in AARRGGBB) Shorthand hexadecimal notation for the combination of red, green and blue, where both hexadecimal digits of each color are the same. The value is specified as 3 one-digit hexadecimal numbers (0...F) as RGB, where R=red, G=green and B=blue. With alpha it will be interpreted as FFRRGGBB.

Example: 00F (interpreted as FF0000FF in AARRGGBB)

Color name as string. The following 17 standard colors are supported: aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, grey, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow.

Example: blue (interpreted as FF0000FF in AARRGGBB)

  • k (kilometers, 1k = 1000 meters)
  • m (myriad meters, 1m = 10000 meters)
  • l (lakh meters, 1l = 100000 meters)
  • mi (miles, 1mi = 1609.344 meters)
  • ft (feet, 1ft = 0.3048 meters)
