Hi Mike,

I have areas which vertices do not have same altitude.
When I export in KML theses areas have an altitude at 0 instead of the vertice altitude.
Could you have a look at it.

Thanks
Iaorana

    What options are you using in the '3D Area Export' section of the KML export options dialog? When I use the 'Draw 3D Areas Above Terrain' option I get the attached KMZ file which displays as expected in Google Earth.

    Thanks,

    Even yours doesn't work, I should have a slope from inner side of all blue areas to the outer side of it.
    Look in 3d in GM

    This is what I should get for part of it
    I edited KML manually

    Sorry, you are correct, there was a bug exporting non-closed 3D areas to KML/KMZ files. I have fixed that now. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11.zip with the change for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v11.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit version, there is a new build available at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper11_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Mike,

    It seems allright for the few export I did.
