How to quickly correct faulty KML file structure (KB-GI005)
KML file processing fails in vGIS Portal.
This issue occurs commonly when the KML file structure is incorrect (e.g., missing or duplicated folder IDs).
It is possible to fix the KML structure by reviewing and correcting entries manually. Manual correction is a laborious process, and often it is quicker and easier to fix all formatting issues with ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro:
- Launch ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro.
- Use the KML to Layer tool from the Conversion Tools toolbox to import the source KML file into ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro.
- Use the Map to KML tool from the same toolbox to export the file.
- Upload the output file in vGIS and process it.
