Global Mapper v24.0

KML file not recognised in DJI Map Pilot

I have exported a KML file and when I load it into DJI Map Pilot my simple vector polygon isn’t recognised.

 The GM project is have was in GDA94 MGA55 format and I changed the project settings and the polygon to Geographic WGS84 as that is what Map Pilot uses.

I can create a KML from Google Earth and that works fine.


  • Kcross, this happens to me occasionally as well.  The main problems are usually exporting a 3D polygon OR exporting more than one polygon to a single KMZ/KML.  I think that turning on the "Extrude areas..." option causes problems often times as well.  

    When I have this issue, I'll usually open up my KML in google earth and save it back down from there, then upload to the flight planning software.
