Title: KML Polygon and Multigeometry problem
Post by: Qba on August 20, 2011, 17:50:39
Hi,

I am pretty new user of Locus but it is very impressive application in matter of functionality and apperance. Previuosly I have used Maverick Pro but I think they stoped to develope it. For now I am testing Locus Free but probably it will get me to buy Pro version. But comming back to the topic. I have got 2 problems during importing KML files with Multigeometry or Polygon functions.

1. When I import KML file with Multigeometry (with Point and Polygon) with <name> and <description> under <Placemark> and under <Multigeometry> Locus import Point as a Point and Polygon as a Route but Point have a name from <Multigeometry><name> nad Info from <Multigeometry><description> but Route have no name no infos.

2. When I import KML file with <Polygon> Locus properly copy <name> and <description> but do not transfer style <LineStyle> and <Polystyle>

attached two KML files as an example (extension kml changed to zip due to this forum restrictions).


best regards
Qba

there is few mistakes on my side and few on yours! (fix me if I write something wrong please)

yours:
1. http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documen ... html#style (http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlreference.html#style) - styles have to be in <Document> tag
2. Multigeometry http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documen ... tigeometry (http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlreference.html#multigeometry) - contains only geometry objects, no more name and description tags

mine:
1. igonoring data from PlaceMark - fixed!

Thank You for quick answer, but unfortunately I have bad news:

STYLES - adding <Document> for file with <MultiGeometry> do not change nothing. Do You have differ results than I have? If yes, could You send me a KML file to investigate? Despite of that <style id...> used for <Polygon> work perfectly without <Document>,

NAME, DESC - probably in one <Placemark> could be only one <name> and one <description> (Locus take name and description from the last one used even if it is located in <Multigeometry> area).

I am not sure which data You have mention

Tehere is another one - when I use <Multigeometry> with <Point> and <Polygon>, Locus importing that give a name for POI (Point) and do not give a name for Track (Polygon). Track is shown as "/sdcard/Locus/tracks/"
I think that there is something wrong in the process of taking out <Polygon> for Track and <Point> for POI from <Multigeometry>. But that is only guess.

hi Qba, should be all fixed now. So please try next release version and let me know. (don't forget to keep styles in <Document> tag)
