Can't import KML file

Wed Jul 03, 2013 2:32 pm

Hello,
2 questions:
1- when I import the KML file its says "An error occurred: Latitude must be between -90 and +90 degrees."

2 - Once this is working, is there a way to periodically update this automatically? I.E. we have machine locations that are updated in this file daily, and we would like this to update on the tracker.

Much appreciated!!

So here's a tip, all the programs we use for some reason put the data in as lon lat. So once I reversed all the locations it worked OK.

Question 2 remains...

So Admins,
Why does GPSgate not accept the KML format the way we export it but Google Earth does?

I can run it through this validator and have no issues at all

Please send the failing file together with a shorter explanation of the problem to support @ gpsgate.com and we will take a look at it.

When it comes to CSV import you need to make sure you follow the GpsGate import format. You see the import format on the Import page in SiteAdmin.
