Reader Parameters

As we know, a workspace contains a reader to read a dataset, and each layer in that dataset is shown in the workspace canvas:

To control how that reader operates requires the use of reader parameters.

Finding Reader Parameters

Reader parameters can be located - and set - by clicking Parameters when a new workspace is being generated:

They can also be found in the Navigator window in Workbench:

Because parameters refer to specific components and characteristics of the related format, readers of different formats have a different set of control parameters.

Setting Reader Parameters

To edit a parameter in the Navigator window, double-click on any of the parameters. Doing so opens up a dialog where the parameter’s value may be set:
