What’s wrong with my project boundary data?

Here’s a scenario:

A Project Administrator imports a boundary file, and this results in users not being able to enter data onto the wikimap.

The problem requires a small change in the kml code.  Here are two ways to fix the problem.[toggle title_open=”Solving the problem” title_closed=”Solving the problem” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”white” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

Solving the problem with Google Earth:

Open the file in Google Earth and right click on the boundary area to get info

Google EarthScreenSnapz004


Set the polygon style to Outline

Google EarthScreenSnapz007

Save Place As [your kmz name]
Import the kml or kmz into the project boundary.

Solving the problem using a text editor

  • Open the kml file in a text editor
  • find and replace the following text:<PolyStyle>
  • change it to:<PolyStyle><fill>0</fill></PolyStyle>
  • Save, and import into the project boundary.

And if this doesn’t work, the Map Team is happy to help you out.
