Hi
what type of coordinate system I have to use to import a - let's say a kmz file - into locus and see it.

The reason is that I got a kmz file with the borders of my ground but after the import into locus I see it in the very west of Canada and not in Austria...

Best regards

Hi,
  most information you may find on documentation of KML format here https://developers.google.com/kml/docum ... undoverlay

  anyway coordinates used in KML are spherical WGS coordinates usually used by GPS system. So common -90S - +90N, -180E, +180W

EDIT: and also suggest to check your file in Google Earth. I never said that Locus is without mistakes ;)

Many thanks for the info!
At the moment I do not think that the problem is with locus... ;-)
