KML import doesn't use ExtendedData

webmicha shared this problem 7 years ago
Not a Problem

for Germany, there is a list of rescue points in forests available. it comes as a kml-file.

It uses ExtendedData-Tags to describe every rescue point. A RP is just a waypoint.

I'd like to use it as mapitems in locus pro, but during import, all data between ExtendedData-Tags ist ignored.

Here is a snippet of the original file:

  1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
  2. <kml >
  3. <Document id="root_doc">
  4. <Schema name="V1_7_final" id="V1_7_final">
  5. <SimpleField name="RP_Nr" type="string"></SimpleField>
  6. <SimpleField name="WGS_Laenge" type="float"></SimpleField>
  7. <SimpleField name="WGS_Breite" type="float"></SimpleField>
  8. <SimpleField name="Urheber" type="string"></SimpleField>
  9. <SimpleField name="Bemerkung" type="string"></SimpleField>
  10. </Schema>
  11. <Folder><name>V1_7_final</name>
  12. <Placemark>
  13. <ExtendedData><SchemaData schemaUrl="#V1_7_final">
  14. <SimpleData name="RP_Nr">CO-L-1040</SimpleData>
  15. <SimpleData name="WGS_Laenge">11.174695</SimpleData>
  16. <SimpleData name="WGS_Breite">50.219638</SimpleData>
  17. <SimpleData name="Urheber">Bayerische Staatsforsten</SimpleData>
  18. <SimpleData name="Bemerkung">Waldzufahrt in Ortsmitte Neuses a. Brand</SimpleData>
  19. </SchemaData></ExtendedData>
  20. <Point><coordinates>11.173332329000061,50.218479605000027</coordinates></Point>
  21. </Placemark>
  22. <Placemark>
  23. <ExtendedData><SchemaData schemaUrl="#V1_7_final">
  24. <SimpleData name="RP_Nr">CO-L-1032</SimpleData>
  25. <SimpleData name="WGS_Laenge">11.050347</SimpleData>
  26. <SimpleData name="WGS_Breite">50.275033</SimpleData>
  27. <SimpleData name="Urheber">Bayerische Staatsforsten</SimpleData>
  28. <SimpleData name="Bemerkung">Einfahrt zur ehemaligen Muelldeponie der Stadt Coburg an der CO 7</SimpleData>
  29. </SchemaData></ExtendedData>
  30. <Point><coordinates>11.049001340000075,50.273866817000055</coordinates></Point>
  31. </Placemark>

At least, "RP_Nr" and "Bemerkung" should be displayed when tapping a waypoint.

Is there a way to do so?

Hi Micha,

within you find modified .kml.

Headline is modified and 3 endtags added




please unzip attachement


Hi Wolfgang, my intention was, that I'd like to see the waypoint name in the map view. For this the <name>-tag should be added to a placemark. I think I will suggest this to the creator of the rescue points kml.

    Hello Webmicha,

    I'm now not sure, if there is any problem or not.

    If Locus do something unexpected, please share any KML file so I may test it. If anyway you want's to see something special on a map as a name of points (something other then name), you'll have to modify content of file itself.
