I'm trying to load the KML file with romanian counties(ROU_adm1.kml) into a Sense app, but the load editor does not recognize the file. It works with the world.kml or other kml files.
I tried checking the file on the website KML Viewer
and it shows properly but Sense would not take it. Anybody else encountered this problem? Is there a workaround of some sort?
Thank you in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
I once encountered the same problem with the KML file. I was using the QuickMap extension for loading US states.The solution was putting the .kml file in the extension folder under the path:
Hope this resolves the issue.
When I run the KML file through a XML parser it complains that the file is not UTF-8 and get the error:
file:///C:/Users/bvk/Downloads/ROU_adm1.kml:3483: parser error : Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
Bytes: 0xE2 0x6D 0x62 0x6F
Bjorn, thank you so much for fixing the file. It works like a charm now
Bas, i think I can understand why. The files were downloaded from a Romanian site, I think that's why it had one of the counties spelled that way.
Thank you both for your help, this fixed file will be very useful to the other romanian developers that will encounter this problem.
Do you guys have ROU_adm 2 (meaning level 2) the smaller counties (UAT). I can only find big files (like 35 MB) and Qlik Sense does not load such big files.
PS: thanks for solving the ROU_adm 1 file, it works just fine. (indeed two of the counties had "special characters" in it)
@Bjorn Wedbrat I just pulled a KML file from google and with locations of my company's employees address and I can't load it into qlik sense.It does not give any error but simply not loading.
Can you help me?
