GiD offers a window for entering points in order to create geometries easily, defining fixed or relative coordinates as well as different reference systems - cartesian, cylindrical or spherical.
The coordinates of a point can be entered either in the enter points window or in the command line by following one of two possible formats:
Coordinate z can be omitted in both cases.
The following are valid examples of point definitions:
5.2,1.0 5.2,1 8 9 2 8 9,2
All of a point's coordinates can be entered as local or global and through different reference systems in addition to the cartesian one.
