Subject: [geometry] WKT plotter?

Do you have any recommendations for an online WKT plotter, or some small utility to run on a Windows machine?

I found


but they seem to be strictly oriented towards geographic coordinates which makes it quirky to use with the kinds of coordinates I have in my system (would require some scaling).

The WKT I want to plot is the following (just to give you an idea):
MULTIPOLYGON(((1371 932,1371 789,3171 789,3171 2589,3156 1669,3156 1650,2262 1200,1371 932)),((1371 1672,2262 2160,1341 2589,1371 2589,1371 1672)))

This multi-polygon does not satisfy is_valid and in fact runs into an "Overlay invalid input exception" when used as a parameter to difference, but at first glance I cannot see why. I'll plot it on paper for this time, but if you have a suggestion for a tool it would be very much appreciated.
